LAST KING OF POLAND (Tomasz Ryszard Jurczak) is a Polish noise artist from Chicago who has for the last years traveled the world, touring Japan and the United States extensively. He just got back to Chicago from his first European tour which took place in May and June. There he will be recording his debut LP, Insular, at Electrical Audio. Previously he has released ten cassettes on different labels, the newest being an improvisational collaboration with Japanese noise artist Go, out on 1980 records.
His whole creation in itself is an identity crisis, between two different worlds. Back and forth between American brashness and Polish chivalry which he brings out with loops and samples of waves and everyday life. His performance is unique. Muted, he would look like a vivid story teller, passionately explaining his travels through outer space with sadness in his heart.

EMERGE is inspired by the minimalist traditions of experimentalism and non-academic noise music, focusing on generating sound structures intended to make atmospheres emerge that are open to each listener’s own interpretation. The choice of sound sources used is usually very limited. In most cases only rudiments of the original sounds are recognizable due to various treatments. EMERGE also uses and recycles raw material from a variety of artists/musicians.
