Jerry & ThePelicanSystem is the original project of saxophonist and composer Jerzy Mączyński. In May 2019, an album was released in the prestigious Polish Jazz Series (Warner Music Poland / Polskie Nagrania). VIRTUAL TOUR is a continuation of the idea of creating new compositions for various musicians from around the world, as well as searching and experimenting with form and various bands.
As part of the project, there will be produced a series of music programs, which periodically by the end of September 2020, will be available online for free to the public on Jerzy Mączyński’s channels, i.e. the website, social media and YouTube. Each episode will include a new composition specially prepared for the episode. The concert part will always be preceded by “making – off” material, and the last part of the program will include interviews with the creators of a given episode and live chat on Instagram after each broadcast.
The concept of ‘Jerzy Mączyński Jerry & ThePelicanSystem – Virtual Tour’ is a response to the demand for a virtual cultural offer in the age of coronavirus pandemic.
The project was subsidised by the National Centre for Culture under the programme Kultura w sieci.
