POETRY / JAZZ / IMPROV

 

 

 

 

 

New Beast Generation is a new musical unit from Krakow, Poland. It is an open project whose participants are interested in creative work in literature and music. Literature is mainly poetry and music usually means jazz / improv. Of course, their musical backgrounds are much varied and not just these.

In the past they were involved in different bands and projects focusing on classical music, hardcore punk, folk, avantgarde or hip hop among others. This time they concentrate on poetry and the keyword is improvisation. New Beast Generation draw inspiration from many different sources like the ancient oral literature tradition or the Jazz & Poetry phenomenon so often associated with the Beat Generation movement.

New Beast Generation are happy to announce that they feature HeFi on saxophones, flutes, clarinets and live electronics. They have just made a successful debut in a Krakow club called Zielony Kontrabas, presenting their music along with the spoken word and promoting a brand new book of poetry.

Zielony Kontrabas is a small, nice club located at 14 Miodowa Street and has cool ambiance for atmospheric events. It seems an ideal place for such jazz / poetry gigs. The crowd was not big but attentive and enthusiastic.

Underground and grassroots. As simple as that. And it's so very important in the dark times when so much control over culture has been taken over by beer manufacturers and other bloody corporations.
