Changes

A 12 track ambient album (31m 43s) — released May 27th 2016 on PlugAudio

Meeting by Chance is a solo project of Marcin Cichy co-creator of the legendary

Polish duo Skalpel (Ninja Tune), one of the most important talents from Poland to come

into the international limelight.

"Changes" is second LP from Marcin released unexpectedly after critically

acclaimed debiut "Inside Out" . Musically you will find an eclectic blend of jazz, leftfield, tiphop

and ambient here. Marcin, always a very careful observer, took inspiration for Meeting

By Chance from a sequence photography by Duane Michals entitled "Chance Meeting"

comprising of six photos of two passing strangers. The sequence has no definite end but

rather a pregnant pause, and this combined with freezeframe creates a space. This gave

Marcin the idea for music that fills this space with a magical and dreamy soundscape filled

with creative, sublime sensitivity, giving both the composer and listeners a brief portal

away from hectic reality.

Meeting by Chance also takes its influence from a chance meeting with four

vocalists who are featured throughout the entire album. Noah (Flau - Japan) subtle voice

noticed by Guardian as the "best new bands of 2015" head to head with Little Simz, White,

Mura Masa and more . Gustav Ahr young trip-hop talent from New York . And finally

Magda Nazgar√łth and Karol Wr√≥blewski (Small Mechanics) - his voice is often

compared with Jamie Woon . Both from Poland.

I enjoyed 'Better Now', and your Skalpel tunes. I can hear the same warmth in the bass frequencies on this new solo track, and a similar simplicity and tranquility in your approach. It's ace. - YSANNE SPEVACK

Production on this is nice - definitely has a soundtrack vibe to it, and could be worth pitching to agencies for syncs, etc. - CHRIS CABLE

It's very nice and chill, which is what I generally associate with Ninja Tune artists. - Raziq Rauf

Great composition, exceptional sonic intervals - Jerry Doby

Nice chill-jazz tune, perfect for a relaxing afternoon - D Grant Smith

I love the vibe on this - SD Hox

This is great! - Marcus Brooke-Smith

I can play on my KCRW show in the early morning hours when the sun is coming up...can't wait! - Valida Carroll

The music is very jazzy and ambient - Eric mcLellan
