Silence of the Mermaids

Michał Pepol

Tickets: 35 PLN

Singing is the essential strength of mermaids, and working under their spell is a perverse dream of many a musician. I would also like to have this power of a mermaid and always be able to seduce an audience. But this would require an unconditioned opening into the dark side of my subconscious. A meeting with a mermaid is a meeting with myself, one most sensitive and delicate, and at the same time a self-censored fraction of my hidden self. So let this be a concert-liberation from conventions, genres, habits and expectations. Let this be a concert-hybrid, just like a mermaid is. Let's look the mermaid in the eye and listen to her. While listening to her, let's listen to ourselves. Let's get seduced by the polyphony of the human voice, cellos, and the inhabitants of the ocean. – Michał Pepol
