Cezary Gapik – The Sum Of Disappearing Sounds | review by Justinas Mikulskis (Secret Thirteen)

Posted on May 4, 2012


“Cezary Gapik (also known as CEZAR) is a Polish performer of drone, abstract and experimental music, currently living and producing in Częstochowa. Affected of music creation in 1980 while being an animator of local punk rock bands, he studied the evolution of computer, was making music and right now he has released more than 30 individual works. Thus he assuredly stands among the best Eastern European intellectual musicians. Cezary also participates in such bands as QG/GQ and Sub Spa where he expands his productivity and creativeness.



“The Sum Of Disappearing Sounds” is a penetrating album which consists of 4 shivering compositions. Released as limited edition of 222 hand-numbered CD copies by Karlrecords, Germany. Associated to Drone, Noise and Experimental music styles, this album clearly stands as a model how rich and extensive integral sound can be. The substructure is balanced on the intense atmosphere which is consistently processed and reshaped by sound devices. The developing is patient to create long-lasting compositions. Resonating middle textures continuously are enhanced by various effects and oscillator modulations to create a microscopic activity in the wholeness. Static upper layers are completely manageable in a process and that proves Cezary’s maturity in music knowledge. Cezary’s unique distortion, subtle monotony and sharp sounding expressions are handled so gently just not to astonish listeners with annoying furor but to attract new audience. The pure quality of erudite profound music which ensures that noise music can be democratic.

“The Sum Of Disappearing Sounds” is like a stargazing at night with scientific talks about the astronomical theories and metaphysical scenarios that are hidden in cosmos.” – Justinas Mikulskis / Secret Thirteen
