Sub Spa - Alternative Visions of Pleasure

Audiovisual salon of alternative delights to all who are not able to find themselves in a solarium or a wellness clinic.  Sounds that irritate and rub visceral. Video neurowipping. 
Sub Spa is a project of musicians and visual artists who has been beyond any aesthetic trends, ideology or market. Uncompromisingly seek their particular forms of pleasure in a world of finely homogenized pseudo hedonism.
The project on the move. The work in progress.

Cezary Gapik 
was born in Czestochowa, Poland in 1963. He started his musical activity in 1980 as an animator of punk rock bands. Soon enough he discovered new sounds which were brought by the punk rock rebellion. Cabaret Voltaire, Public Image Ltd. or other “new wave” bands had an enormous influence on the perception of music by Cezar. Plunging into the fundaments of musical avant-garde (Karlheinz Stockhausen, Morton Feldman, Luc Ferrari, La Monte Young), the appearance of new creative possibilities (computer) together with the works of artists like Mick Harris (Lull, Scorn), Illusion of Safety, etc. had definitively shaped the musical direction towards which Cezary Gapik follows. His musical creation is based on drones and micro-tonal sound planes interlaced with abstract “images” (field recordings, prepared instruments, various objects) or computer-processed synthetic sounds (glitch)…

Active since the late eighties, he started in grindcore-industrial groups, and then continued founding groups of musicians from different backgrounds, playing post-hc-free-jazz or heavy and trance-like avant trip-hop. At the same time, he was dedicated to contemporary chamber music composing, performing and acoustic music recording. He also participated in radical electronic projects ranging from isolationism to noise. He has been the leader of 2g and 3 Metry. Co-founder of Sub Spa, Nonstate, QKS, Golden Nine and 2g as zmu, he cooperates with various solo artists as well: Cezary Gapik and Nines 091999 inter alia.
