Szelest Spadających Papierków (English: The Rustle Of Falling Papers). Founded in Gdańsk, Poland in 1981.
Sławomir “Ozi” Żamojda (born 1965) and Szymon Albrzykowski (born 1964) met in 1981 at a concert. A few weeks later they made their first joint performance as a new group, which took a number of names over the following years, e.g. Pop Corn, Paryskie Trąbki (Paris Trumpets), Paryskie Trąbki Wariaty (Paris Crazy Trumpets). Although inspired by punk rock, their music went beyond that aesthetic formula. Their live performances rarely finished in a traditional way, as they affirmed various forms of destruction as a primary tool of artistic creation and accomplished that by demolishing their musical instruments and sound equipment.
In 1985 Żamojda and Albrzykowski changed their moniker to Szelest Spadających Papierków, a phrase borrowed from a poem by Ireneusz Falecki, a Polish poet invited to cooperate with the collective.
The period of 1985-1992 was the most successful and creative time in the band’s career. They established a long-term cooperation with the avant-garde TOTART group. Their gigs at that time were more of a sort of multimedia performance with Dadaistic and surrealistic poetry, slides or film projections and para-theatrical happenings. They played trance music, inspired by the industrial avant-garde of rock music and made with traditional acoustic instruments (guitar, drums) as well as with electronics (noise generators, electronic drum, prepared tapes).
The 1990s saw Szelest Spadających Papierków pare down their activities and focuse more on their families and professional lives. After that hiatus in 2001 they released a new album called “Płyta Redłowska”. (Discogs)
