Meeting by Chance

Inside Out


Released: 12th February 2016 | 9 track downtempo album

Meeting by Chance is a solo project of Marcin

Cichy co-creator of the legendary Polish duo Skalpel

(Ninja Tunes), one of the most important talents from

Poland to come into the international limelight.

Marcin considers Inside Out as his solo debut

album, despite numerous previous albums in

collaboration with other artists. Marcin felt it was now

the right time to sum up his own ideas and share

them. Musically you will find an eclectic blend of

jazz, leftfield, and ambient.

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

freeze-frame 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 three female vocalists who are

featured throughout the entire album. Ayuko and

Mayuko (recording for Japanese label FLAU)

and Magda added a unique and intimate feel to the

project. Dominik Tarabinski's photo on the cover

gave some flesh to this spacious productions bones.
