Polish electro-acoustic composer Jacaszek is riding a wave of interest in his work, what with his recent Resident Advisor podcast and numerous soundtrack projects under way. "Lament" is exemplary of Jacaszek's work, which shares Henryk Górecki's ponderous movements, Arvo Pärt's neo-classical melodic sensibilities, and dark atmospheric flourishes that wouldn't be out of place on a Burial record. Tonight, Jacaszek will be playing with members of the ACME orchestra at Le Poisson Rouge as part of a showcase of Polish composition, which has been given a special spotlight as part of this year's Unsound Festival, wrappin up this Sunday in New York.
