~ tilde 2 is a network for experimental music initiated by Polish sound platform Sanatorium Dźwięku, aimed at creating possibilities for cooperation between musicians from the Baltic countries, leading to lasting relationships in the field of culture and developing dialogue between artists working in an experimental contemporary music context. Over a 3 day period, Tilde II will invite artists from Poland, Sweden, Norway and Russia.~ tilde 2 will be held in three cities, Moscow, Stockholm and Oslo. It is the continuation of the project Tilde I, a Polish experimental music networked ensemble work in collaboration with Scandinavian artists that culminated in a presentation of a broad spectrum of electroacoustic improvised, electronic, and contemporary music. Concerts by artists such Robert Piotrowicz, Krzysztof Knittel, Gerard Lebik, Piotr Damasiewicz, Martyna Poznańska were preceded by lectures about the Polish Radio Experimental Studio, an historically important collective active during the 60s, and one of the most important nodes of contemporary experimental music curated by Michał Libera.
This year, the main idea is to foster an environment of collaboration and exchange between artists engaged in experimental music by presenting their work different constellations, formats and ensembles. Tilde II will invite artists such as Mats Lindström, Lasse Marhaug, Robert Piotrowicz, Anna Zaradny, Kurt Liedwart, Alexei Borisov, Ilia Belorukov, Josefin Lindebrink, Tomasz Krakowiak, Piotr Damasiewicz and Gerard Lebik.
These artists will collaborate on developing new tendencies of experimental music in important venues like Fylkingen, Stockholm and DOM, Moscow.
Project curated by Gerard Lebik and Zuzanna Fogtt.

Sound artist, composer, improviser.
He has authored radio dramas, sound installations, and music for theatre productions, and collaborates regularly with other artists on audio-visual performances. As an instrumentalist, Piotrowicz works mainly with his own live performance setup, developed around the electric guitar and analogue modular synthesiser. His music has as much in common with contemporary electro-acoustic compositions as it does with sound art. His concerts feature saturated, detailed musical forms created with analogue synthesizers and computers. He has developed his trademark sound of intense dynamics seized in dramatic and balanced structures.
PIotrowicz has released several solo albums as well as collaborations with artists such as Burkhard Stangl, Anna Zaradny, Jérôme Noetinger, C. Spencer Yeh and Kevin Drumm. Other collaborators in recent years included Valerio Tricoli, Oren Ambarchi, Martin Klapper, Zbigniew Karkowski, Łukasz Szałankiewicz, Lasse Marhaug, John Hegre, Kasper Toepltz, Xavier Charles,Tony Buck and others.

His more occasional collaborators have included John Oswald, Kaffe Matthews, CCMC, Ute Völker, Paul Dutton, Gert-Jan Prins, Vic Rawlings. Influenced by experimental and electroacoustic practices, Krakowiak’s sounds are explorations of different sonoristic drum qualities his work has been called “splendid overlapping calvacade of tones.”(The Wire), “unique and very, very rich” (Just Outside), and “of entirely different quality and tone” (Brainwashed).
