Choosing the more difficult path – interview with Cold Therapy

Updated: 14 October, 2014 Created: 11 October, 2014 By:Adalbert Category: Interviews
It was in the year 2010 when the project lead of Jacek Wolanski aka. Traum was released. “A time past” by his band Unsinn was the first release published by Halotan Records, and one of the few albums on the Polish scene which could be classified as dark electro. “A time past” showed that its leader is a talented musician and ambitious songwriter, who refuses to base on simple and often threadbare ideas. Since that time Jacek never ceased to impress his audience, firstly with his second band Traumatize, and now with Cold Therapy, which seems to be his most mature and atmospheric project up to date. Cold Therapy, which now has become an international Polish-German-American project consists now of theree persons: Jacek (main composer, electronics), Jan – formerly known from Tanaros (lead vocals ), and Jen  from 13th Angel (female vocals). All of them agreed to answer our qiestions, concerning  their new effort, entitled “Masquerade Infinite”.

Adalbert: Last interview on Halotan Record’s site was made in 2012, when Cold Therapy was launched. Do you remember why you decided to disable Traumatize and begin a new project? Are you still happy with this decision? Do you still see potential in Cold Therapy’s formula?

Jacek: Well, it wasn’t just my decision about disabling Traumatize, the project had one more member. We had some problems and together decided to not continue anymore.

It wasn’t only stopping working on Traumatize, in this moment I wanted to stop making music in general. After some time (few months I think) and the persuasion of friends who didn’t let me just stop like that – I got back to it. I was a bit demotivated… it’s not easy to start working from scratch, build everything again, but after all music is what I love to do and I missed it.

So, that's how Cold Therapy was born. This time I wanted to make something different, something more „personal”, more into my own musical tastes, to express myself

So, that’s how Cold Therapy was born. This time I wanted to make something different, something more „personal”, more into my own musical tastes, to express myself. Yes, I am happy about this decision, if it wouldn’t happen, Cold Therapy would never born. I would never discover that this kind of music I make right now is the right path which I enjoy more.

If it comes to that if I see potential in Cold Therapy’s formula… it depends, I would say it’s yes and no at the same time. I know making this kind of music is more difficult to find new listeners, get promotion, get included in DJ sets, etc. It don’t really matter to me that much, I just appreciate every single person who take the time to listen to CT and like our material. Even if that means we will reach lesser audience, it’s worth it, as this is the path which I want to go, this is the music which shows my own tastes and working on it gives me a lot of pleasure.

Cold Therapy – In excelsis

I would like to add – soon there should be out „new” Traumatize’s EP, which was an idea of the listeners. It’s not really a new release, this EP will have previously unreleased songs which will be gathered together and put out for the people, who really wanted once more to hear something from Traumatize.

There will be also something new I made exclusively for this EP, like the first polish song in Traumatize’s history titled „Moje Odbicie” or „Far Enough”. Both have snippets available to listen to on the Traumatize’s SoundCloud page.

It should be officially the last release from this project, after that the only activity which will remain will be making remixes if anyone will request it.
