Immortal Onion

The Trio was founded in the spring of 2016. Artists such as Esbjörn Svensson, Hiromi Uehara and Tigran Hamasyan are where the band gets its inspiration from. The classification of Immortal Onion's music is rather challenging, as the musicians are not afraid to refer to many music genres. Their songs are influenced, among others by jazz, film music, minimalism, fusion, electronic music, and even progressive metal. In spite of this divergence in the styles they rotate in, they have succeeded in creating their own recognizable language.

Their distinctive sound is down to them skillfully combining energetic and rhythmically complex fragments with minimalist, trickier themes and lyrical themes.

The technical and musical proficiency of Immortal Onion's members would not be so surprising if not the fact that the oldest member, Ziemowit Klimek is currently in a 1st year student of composition and entertainment arrangement at the Academy of Music in Gdańsk in the class of Prof. Leszek Kułakowski. Wojtek Warmijak graduated high school last year and the other composer - Tomir Śpiołek will graduate this year from both high school and the Secondary School of Music in Gdansk.

Although Immortal Onion is a rather new band, the young trio has performed at many festivals including the 41st Film Festival in Gdynia. They have also composed the original soundtrack of two films shown at the following festivals: the 2nd Animated Film Festival in Gdansk and the 17th Silent Film Festival in Pod Baranami Cinema in Cracow.

„At Times,the trio sounded like a well-oiled machine. Precision and very good teamwork allowed the band to flourish in the soundtrack finale, when they turned on a stunning,trance gear with ease. The audience who had been to Mars a few hours before, was sent to space again.” Łukasz Badula, kulturaonline.pl

„The album we get as a final result, is a refined, sophisticated, and yet very powerful work. Clearly, it is very carefully designed, and at the same time it is rather distant from a classical approach to jazz. It seems that the pivotal component of the album is the mood, which Immortal Onion keeps building and altering in a fascinating way, thus creating a seducing, cinematic athmosphere.” Jakub Knera, noweidzieodmorza.com
