Adam Juraszek (1989) is a musician from London, currently based in the Netherlands where he is studying for an MMus at the Institute of Sonology at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague.
He has a background as a guitarist playing metal, math-rock and drone, and then later electronic styles like hip-hop and IDM. Under his performing alias ‘BZGRL’ he has produced remixes and various tracks for compilations that are available on tape. His research and musical practice involve exploring the intersections of musique concrète, noise music and underground club music by using eclectic sound sources (sometimes abstract and synthesized, sometimes field recordings, sometimes ‘found-sounds’ or radio broadcasts scraped or appropriated from the internet) and self-built software. The themes he tries to address include a sceptical attitude towards technology, dystopian aesthetics, the waning of affect in contemporary music and culture and the juxtaposition or collision of different contextual codes and rhythmic signatures.
