Korzynski, Andrzej

***During the maiden voyage into an expansive vat of unreleased music by Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski, Finders Keepers Records originally presented his previously unreleased electro / orchestral / experimental score for Andrzej Zulawski's surrealist '80s horror classic Possession in 2012. These 25 cues were written and recorded exclusively for the 1981 award-winning film starring Isabelle Adjani and Sam Neil, but due to the progressive, stark and modernist nature of the finished film less than half of them made it on to the actual director's cut—leaving many of the tracks on this package totally unheard outside of Korzynski's studio. The intended Possession score in its entirety marks an important axis in Korzynski's career where his various musical disciplines overlap. In one respect it marks his first forays into to synth driven electronics and disco drum machines, while other tracks epitomize the well-honed techniques used in previous Zulawski scores, such as Third Part Of The Night and The Devil, which rely on his inimitable orchestral arrangements and combination of clavinet, Rhodes, piano and electric guitar. Available once again on black 12" vinyl for the first time since its original release some 11 years ago, Finders Keepers' ongoing commitment to the important restoration of Korzynski's music aims to shed new light on the seldom manufactured productions of the composer whose vast cinematic catalogue warrants overdue global status alongside other golden era Eastern European composers such as Kryzstof Komeda, Jan Hammer, and Zdenek Liska—not to mention the best of the French and Italian soundtrackers,...

***Twenty-two rare and unreleased vintage tracks from the secret vaults of one of the most enigmatic composers in '60s/'70s/'80s European cinema. Originally recorded in the best studios in Poland, Italy and France for experimental film, political allegories, lost television shows, sound libraries and radio -- these tracks have been hidden behind the Iron Curtain on lost master tapes and film reels until now. Secret Enigma is the first ever dedicated anthology of this great composer's work. Originally released exactly 30 years ago in artistic cinema, Andrzej Korzyński's unique experiments with jazz, pop, rock, orchestral and electronic music make his name synonymous with the most praised (Andrzej Wajda) and the most provocative (Andrzej Żuławski) Polish filmmakers (counting many more in between). As an early patron of the Polish new wave and a key exponent of the development of conceptual Polish pop music his expansive portfolio has remained commercially unreleased and untraveled (like many of the original socialist era Polish made films) and has yet to find its deserved place next to the work of Ennio Morricone, François de Roubaix, and John Barry. Now enhanced by a renewed interest in vintage art house film and a subculture of open minded music collectors many Easter European artists, such as Krzysztof Komeda (Poland), Zdeněk Liska (Czechoslovakia), and now Andrzej Korzynski, have finally begun to earn their place alongside their Central European peers. For lovers of film music and experimental pop this debut anthology and appraisal of Andrzej Korzyński.

Third Part Of The Night by Korzynski, Andrzej

Korzynski, Andrzej

Third Part Of The Night
Finders Keepers

***As one of the most triumphant and beguiling directorial debut features to emerge from the fruitful Polish New Wave, Andrzej Zulawski's 1971 film Third Part Of The Night not only earned the thirty-year-old filmmaker a place next to other radical Polish directors such as Skolimowski and Has, but also galvanized a creative bond with long running collaborator and composer Andrzej Korzyński, providing fans of foreign abstract/suspense cinema with a potent creative fusion to match those of Fellini/Rota and Argento/Goblin, amongst others. Quite simply one of the heaviest psych rock film soundtracks of all time, Andrzej Korzyński's short and unreleased score matched the blueprint that adorned the drawing boards of conceptual French jazz orch-rock composers like Jean-Claude Vannier, Francois De Roubaix, and Alain Gourageur, creating a soundtrack that unknowingly begs comparison to Masahiko Satô's Belladonna Of Sadness and Billy Green's Stone. As one of the first progressive pop writers to come out of the vibrant (but carefully scrutinized) Polish beat scene with his bands Ricecar 64 and later Arp Life (and composing for national heroes such as Czeslaw Niemen, Niebiesko-Czarni and Test) Korzyński's growing passion for conceptual rock and jazz music soon lead to instrumental composition and soundtrack scores. Third Part Of The Night (1971) perhaps epitomizes that triangular on-screen unison in its vibrant youth and feeds it through a hallucinogenic mangle finding astonishing beauty (within a repulsive synopsis) against a bleak and shattered backdrop and accompanied by progressive, psychedelic orchestral rock music -- elements which would intensify for all three...
