KOŃ - concert for animated films

Koń (A Horse) is an artistic entity founded by guitarist Sławomir Szudrowicz (Something Like Elvis, Dobre Bo Dobre, Selina Martin, 5G), drummer Asia Glubiak (Panieneczki, Limboski, Barbara Wrońska), saxophonist Michał Fetler (Jazzband Młynarski Masecki, Polmuz, Fanfara Avantura) and keyboard and rave gale virtuoso Jakub Królikowski. The formal assumptions of the band oscillate somewhere around country and western style, blues, alternative music, modern jazz and psytrance. "Fusion!" - one might say! By no means, after all, fusion is associated with a bass hanging under one’s chin and Koń doesn't play any bass, because the bass is abandoned nowadays. However, there is a bass saxophone, which 90% of you have presumably never seen before. In 2022, the band released their debut album (although the members are definitely not debutants) that received very enthusiastic reviews. It is also worth saying that Koń is mostly a concert animal.

During Animocje, Koń will perform in the following line up: Sławomir Szudrowicz, Michał Fetler, Jakub Królikowski. Due to personal reason, Asia Glubiak will be replaced by Kevin Górzyński.  

Undone, Konrad Kulczyński, Grażyna Rigall, Poland, 2021, 4’43

Utopian, cut-out animation. A short story about a dream of breaking yourself free from the life in captivity.

Roz-poznanie, Przemysław Świda, Poland, 2020, 6’

Airborne, Andrzej Jobczyk, Polska, 2021, 7’36’’

A still from an animated film. A man dressed in a pilot's suit sits in the cockpit of a glider.

"Airborne” is a surreal animation that connects the world of flying machines with the kingdom of flora and fauna. Engrossed in the fight, an airplane pilot loses his target which leads to tragedy. The plane crashes into the crown of a tree. The tragic ending turns out to open a new stage in history. At the scene of the accident a new life is awakened and now it has to solve the mystery of its origin. Airborne is a story about passion, its roots and what we have to lose to be born again.

Lights out, Jakub Baniak, Polska, 2019, 5’17’’

A still from an animated film. Car interior. A man holds the steering wheel, empty seats next to him.
