Pleq

"Pleq is an ingenious experimental project by Bartosz Dziadosz. He was born in 1983. Philosophy student. Based in Katowice, Poland; Pleq has developed his highly-synthetic competencies through a series of disreality attempts, monastery supervision and a truly Romantic way of handling peer pressure. His motives in sound resemble an abandoned ironworks garage during the industrial revolution, where melancholy is paired with harmonies of magnetizing structure"

Pleq + Seque - The Seed

Artist: Pleq
P: 2010
Each track is well thought creation of  organic soundscapes, deeply layered with glitchy patterns of clicks and warm synthetics.
Incredibly rich, minimal ambient/glitch in the vein of Off The Sky, Blamstrain, Beta Two Agonist, Shuttle358. Pleq is back again, this time in collaboration with Segue for a new release. The music of Pleq always has a good balance between cold and clinical clicks and cuts and warm and deep layers of ambient. This all is sometimes woven into a web of melancholia. This seems especially true with ‘The Seed’.  The album kicks of with a song of Pleq, remixed by Segue, called ‘Fragments Of Memories As A Child’. This track has the typical Pleq elements with a big dose of melancholia thrown in for good measure. The next song ‘The Piano’ is a collaboration between Pleq and Segue. Nice and warm piano melodies are woven into a patch of glitch. Very nice! ‘Blue Wind I’ by Segue in a Pleq remix, is a warm and mysterious soundscape that works very well. With ‘Calm Coolness’ by Pleq, things get somewhat darker. There’s a definite disquieting undercurrent going on. The title of the track seems very fitting. The title track ‘The Seed’ is by Pleq and Segue both and is a very minimal soundscape. There’s a constant high peep in the background, which has a somewhat ominous effect with the combination of the other sounds. ‘The Morning Begin Chilly’ by Pleq and Segue is definitely a dark and chilly song. Dark drones are mixed with glitchy sounds and sounds of bells. The album ends with a song by Segue, ‘Late April’, which brings back a more minimal melancholic sounds, which makes a fitting end to a beautiful album.‘The Seed’ is a very accomplished release. It combines soothing sounndscapes with a darker undercurrent with moments of touching melancholia. Parts of it reminded me a little bit of the more melancholic work of Brian Eno, especially his album ‘Ambient 4: On Land’.

Pleq - Ballet Mechanic

Artist: Pleq
P: 2011
Described by Bartosz himself as “(…) the most personal, abstract and intellectual work to date. Ballet Mechanic is never to be repeated.”, this new offering invites the listener to travel through crackle, screech, squeak, sizzle and subtle drones. Melodies also appear throughout the electric atmospheres, as dark and heavy as in First to Fall or That Is Reallly The End, as feathery and celeste as in Good Night (glitch) or Once Upon A Time. Surely one of Pleq’s most accomplished and homogeneous work to date.

Pleq - Our Words are Frozen

Artist: Pleq
P: 2010
First release on Dataobscura from respected Polish glitch experimentalist Bartosz Dziadosz.A moody infusion of grainy ambient, subtle glitch, and minimal industrial soundscapes. Restrained and fresh, with a distinct northern isolationist and melancholic feeling throughout.
With ‘Our Words Are Frozen’, Pleq has created a very good companion piece to his former album. The album has the same glacial quality as his former work, only without the IDM and electronica rhythms and focuses more on the isolationist ambient soundscape approach.... This album is essential for lovers of glacial ambient as released for example by Glacial Movements Records. Highly recommended!

Pleq - Sound of Rebirth

Artist: Pleq
P: 2010

Experimental musician Bartosz Dziadosz records solo projects under the name Pleq, and Sound of Rebirth is his first release on Impulsive Art. Sound of Rebirth is one of nearly a dozen releases produced by Pleq since 2008, and its technique and timbre display a focused, sparse artist that is happy to introduce a theme and carry it throughout a release.
Atmospheric throughout, Sound of Rebirth begins with more electronic beat sequences than appear at later points in the release. The general progression of the release is from somewhat dense and percussive sounds to sounds that are more disjointed, airy, or open. Beautiful acoustic instrumentation is introduced at certain points in the release, contrasting perfectly to the claustrophobic, almost industrial segments and rich synthesizer passages.
Natalia Grosiak appears on “Raindrop,” one of the transitional tracks on the disc, introducing echoed vocals to peaceful arpeggios and synthetic swells. “Raindrop” follows “The Ribbon,” which is built on percussive blips and a piano part that develops throughout the duration of the song, and it also effectively introduces a three-song sequence that develops acoustic aspects against synthetic and electronic tones that reappear by the end of the sequence.
One of the thought-provoking aspects of the release are the contributions and remixes scattered throughout, and their placement on the disc suggests their inclusion to be strategic signposts along the development of this sparse and atmospheric journey.
Pleq sets the tone for the remixes by placing his own remix of “Magnitophono” after the three transitional tracks I mentioned above, and by the time this remix appears, the synthetic elements have been reintroduced after some acoustic instrumentation. The final three remixes (by Tapage, Spyweirdos, and Nebulo, respectively) emphasize ambient, minimal, and downtempo notes to close the release.
Pleq thoroughly explores a minimal landscape with Sound of Rebirth, and he introduces several signposts along the way without over-populating the release with diverse effects or techniques that draw the listener’s attention away from the overall tone and theme of the songs.
