Wilhelm Bras

Paweł Kulczyński aka Wilhelm Bras (b. 1978), lives and works in Gliwice.
Deals with open air concerts and sound installations, keen builder of analogue instruments. Enthusiast of extreme sounds. Interested in the social and spatial contexts of music, phenomenology of audiosphere and acoustics, random phenomena, conceptualism, laziness and boredom, seeming action and psychedelia.
Since 2013, under the moniker Wilhelm Bras, he has performed and recorded musical pieces where rough avant-garde tissue created with analogue synthesisers is intertwined with rhythmical dance patterns. On the album When Attitudes Become Form #1 he explores the reverberation of a giant postindustrial silo of the former concrete plant. He shows his new musical face with Lautbild, a project which appeals to a wider, club-oriented audience.
The artist performs in public space, on wastelands, in postindustrial and rural areas. Musically, he operates in the sphere of improvised electronics, electro-acoustics, power electronics, ambient and noise.
Graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice. Affiliated for years with the Kronika Gallery in Bytom. He has performed at many festivals such as Unsound New York and Cracow, OFF, Nowa Muzyka, Rokolectiv, Phono Odensee, Sperm Praha, Plateaux and many more.
