This is Mammoth Ulthana

Mammoth Ulthana is a music duo / Jacek Doroszenko + Rafał Kołacki / based on a combination of traditional acoustic instruments, such as an oriental gong set, bells, animal horns, pipes, ethnic drums with prepared piano, and various electronics. This blend creates a sort of unique and intense musical space build on a strong basis and filled with many unforeseen sound events. The main objective of this project is the mutual interpenetration of two acoustic and electronic sound worlds. ♮☉

Wherever we are, what we hear is mostly noise. When we ignore it, it disturbs us. When we listen to it, we find it fascinating.

– John Cage

Mammoth Ulthana – Rafał Kołacki

Rafał Kołacki

Musician (Mammoth Ulthana, Hati, Innercity Ensemble, T’ien Lai) and sound curator (CoCArt Music Festival in Torun). He has hundreds of concerts in Europe and the U.S. and created dozens of music publishing. He collaborated with such renowned artists as Z’EV, John Zorn, Steve Buchanan, Robert Curgenven, Slawomir Ciesielski, and Raymond Salvatore Harmon.

Mammoth Ulthana is based on the customs of the ancient world. Hundreds of centuries ago, in a previous era when life was a struggle for survival, the Mammoth Ulthana tribe wandered north. It was a community made up of shamans and paladins of Nature, where everyone gained the knowledge and power to maintain inner balance by entering the spiritual world of sound. The Mammoth Ulthana were mediators in their culture, communicating with spirits, both living and dead, including the spirits of the dead, on behalf of the community to alleviate anxieties, unsettled issues and provide gifts.

The musicians attempted to bring the Mammoth Ulthana tribe back to modern times using the language of electroacoustic music and combining sounds created through modern technology with traditional acoustic instruments such as gongs and singing bowls, which are said to heal the body by healing the soul. Alleviating traumas affecting the spirit restores balance and brings the individual’s body and mind to wholeness. They tap into the supernatural realms to find solutions to problems troubling the community.
