Magneto: Requiem pour Satana

Magneto is an instrumental group founded by guitarist and composer Bartek Tyciński together with drummer and composer Hubert Zemler and bassist and composer Piotr Domagalski.

Magneto is based in Warsaw (Poland)
The members of the band are part of Warsaw’s experimental, jazz, impro, contemporary music scene. They collaborated in the past in various bands and projects of Warsaw’s legendary independent label Lado ABC. This time they met during Spring lockdown not to get crazy. As a result they recorded „Requiem pour Satana” – 10 instrumental tunes that combine South American rhythms, Thai shadow / surf music, Turkish funk, Hawaiian hula ballad and soundtrack music. Three tunes are arrangements of Louiz Bonfa, Camille Sauvage and P.M. Pocket Music. The rest are original compositions of the trio. The sound is quite minimalistic with dreamy, reverbed guitars and psychodelic, trans rhythm section.
