Do you like Brahms?

Jacek Łydżba

The scene is always seductive - a girl’s head leaning over a music paper. She is absorbed by music and is just about to start playing.

The scene is always seductive – a girl’s head is lowered, her face is focused, her eyes are almost closed. She is listening intensely.

The scene is always seductive – a musical notation, and a girl’s head on it. A ready painting. Jacek Łydżba is staring and listening. He is fascinated with the musical notation and the old music sheets with classical and jazz compositions. He appreciates the sounds, however it is the beauty of old paper, manuscripts found in second-hand bookshops, and borders of book covers that really matters right now. These tracks would be a perfect musical background for romantic and erotic scenes. Performed by Łydżba, they are an appropriate background for painting. Romanticism and erotica are there too. They come out through staves, clefs, notes and rests.

Record players are making a comeback. They’re a must-have now. Retro style, fashion, beauty, just as it was and as it is now.

A broken stylus causes no silence anymore. A broken stylus used to stop music for a long time. And it was really hard to get another one. A new stylus was considered a miracle. The miracle of a stylus used to be a miracle of music at the same time. It’s such a pity that so many records have been thrown out.
