Rafal Mazur's involvement with music began in his youth with the cello studies in Krakow. He switched to bass guitar in the late 1980's. Since 2000 he has played an acoustic bass guitar built to his demand. He has developed an advanced and individual approach to his instrument, and to improvisation in general, in which sonority, extended technique and gesture combine effortlessly in performance.
Mazur is the founder of the ImproArt studio of improvisation and co-founder of the Institute of Intuition, studio dedicated to intuitive improvisations in Kraków. He has performed jazz and improvised music in clubs and festivals across Europe as well as in China, South Korea and Israel. Recently he has collaborated with Lisa Ullen, Frederic Blondy, Charlotta Hug, Raymond Strid, Keir Neuringer, Zsolt Sores and others. His current focus is the trio Ensemble 56, Mazur/Neuringer Duo and Majewski/Kaluza/Mazur/Suchar Quartet.
Mazur's main field of interest and activity is collective and solo free improvisation. He regards Taoism as a strong base for the enrichment of the improviser's attitude.
His most recent work is the first album of solo acoustic bass guitar free improvisation Sonor Forms, released by independent label DTS Records in Krakow. With quartet Majewski/Kaluza/Mazur/Suchar he recorded Tone Hunting for Clean Feed.
