The world lost a noise music giant just a few days ago, with the death of Zbigniew Karkowski. The Polish composer and artist succumbed to pancreatic cancer at the age of 55 on December 12th. While other fans and collaborators have been leaving their messages of sorrow and praise for his work and spirit, I like what local noise merchant Daniel Menche did: give friends, fans, and neophytes a taste of the action with the digital release of a collaboration that he and Karkowski did in 2008. As Menche put it on his Facebook page: “Zbigniew Karkowski and myself collaborated a lot and this one and only album that we did together called ‘UNLEASH’ was something I really cherished. We recorded it live face to face in the studio at ridiculous volume.” The proof is in the pudding, friends. Slap on a pair of headphones and let this give your eardrums a good drubbing. Karkowski would have wanted it that way.
