“Musica Muta”

“It is a kind of sentimental tribute to my favourite musical pieces and also to their analogue recording, which in case of phonograph records has also its graphic dimension. Vinyl phonograph record seems to be the one of last links in a chain of linear, intuitively comprehended, communication. My nostalgic feelings about it mean not only longing after bygone years of our youth, but also after a simpler world with things that were soaking with private histories and which lived and were growing old. Even broken to pieces they were preserving their individuality. I wanted to include in these pictures of fragments of records, existing and visible on them, fragments of music and overlaying them scratches – traces of someone’s (sometimes of my own) life, remnants of gestures so common then, gestures that were eliminated by modern technologies”. (Krzysztof Wojciechowski, 2005)

De tentoonstelling zal te bezichtigen zijn vanaf 17 september t/m 15 oktober 2005 in de Gallery WM, Elandsgracht 35, Amsterdam. De opening vindt plaats op zaterdag 17 september van 17.00 tot 19.00 uur.

The second series shown at the exhibition consists of pictures which I took between 1963 and 1966 when I was still a teenager and enthusiastic aficionado of jazz. I have re-discovered these negatives just recently and printing them was really emotional thing for me. I believe that these pictures of musicians are good complement to the pictures of records that are kind of photographs of music itself.
