The visual artist and composer Filip Markiewicz is mostly influenced in his visual and musical work by alternative pop music and the sociopolitical context, that he mostly translate into drawings, videos and installations. His musical performance project RAFTSIDE is a one-man-band hybrid mixture of songwriting and electro sampling but overall an experimental playground. The surrealistic and slightly protest lyrics are layered on surfrock guitar, that create a cinematic atmosphere.
In 2015, Filip Markiewicz represented Luxembourg at the Venice Biennale with his installation "Paradiso Lussemburgo", where among other installations he presented a "Fake Protest Song Karaoke" and a political disco dancefloor. Markiewicz also writes lyrics and theater plays, during the summer of 2017, he wrote the play "Fake Fiction" for the Theater Basel. Afterwards some topics of the dialogues took the form of pop and protest songs.
Filip Markiewicz, who lives now in Hamburg, recorded the new LP "Empty Star" of his RAFTSIDE project during the summer of 2017 after the infamous G20 summit that took place in the German city. The result of this recording is a melange inspired by the songwriting of the 60s and the electro synth pop of the 80's.
