Jurek

Jurek Jagoda ( EN, George Berry ) from Poland. A musician and composer, author. Creator of his own music and visual forms.

Music

As musician, he is a graduate of Grażyna's Bacewicz Music School in Gdańsk in piano class. The rest is his passion that will stay with him for life. In high school, college and later in life, Jurek works on his own musical technique, playing the piano and guitar and writing his own compositions. He is also the author of lyrics for own songs. His currently available musical output includes projects for a jazz piano trio, solo albums, e.g. "Adrenaline" (2007), arrangements for various instruments, songs and music for picture.

He is also the founder and leader of the Jurek Jagoda Trio. The group was active in 2007-2012 years and recorded two albums "Songs Without Words" (2010) and "Liberated" ( 2011). Both albums with his compositions. The album "Songs Without Words" for Jazz Trio can be considered his stage debut and was noticed in the ranking 'Albums Of The Year 2010' of the British jazz magazine Jazzwise. The song „If Only I Could Tell You" from this album was also included in the compilation „For Jazz Audio Fans Only vol. 4" by Japanese music journalist Yasukuni Terashima. A CD with a compilation of studio and life performance with his trio was also attached to monthly polish jazz magazine Jazz Forum (03/10).

On the way

In high school, in addition to music, his wide-ranging interests related to the creation of space direct him to another path of formal education. This bears fruit with a diploma in the architecture department of the Gdansk University of Technology.

In his university years, as well as in his later professional work, he is more interested in the creative field than in engineering. He gains experience as an assistant stage designer at the National Opera in Warsaw, and works with audiovisual studios as a kind of multi-tasking unit ( graphics, music, photo / video ). Then he has been running his own creative studio for several years.

Jurek's experience also includes about three years of creating spaces in a multicultural environment in the UAE. His individual works include museum exhibition designs, commercial interiors or stage arrangements for events and various projects for private audiences.

Portfolio

His current output includes own musical compositions and songs, thematic photography, music videos and space design. In addition to working on personal endeavours, he offers services related to his experience.
