About this site

As forms take shape, an era awaits

Forms + Shapes is an advisory agency and independent publication by Mike Mokotow Pelczynski documenting all things at the intersection of music.

Hi, I'm Mike. I like beer & ice cream. I'm also a songwriter and former head of strategy & commercial business at SoundCloud. I find satiation in challenging the status quo, building & architecting things. Sometimes people notice. Sometimes it's just matter of personal spiritual survival. I strive for balance (through imbalance), obsess over the human condition, pine for progress & seek some semblance of 'peace of mind'.

Most importantly I look forward to communing with you – like minds, sharing bodies of work & challenging it all.
