    The concert of this six-person group with a program that touches the Polish interdisciplinary genius of Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz (philosopher, play righter, painter) with a composition made by improvisation under the title "Witkacy Archipelago" - Witkacy is a pseudonym of Witkiewicz . Our performance is about hour-long musical reference to Witkiewicz's vision of dehumanization of societies through three revolutions: communist, fascist and technological. Everything is very musical in spite of the program aspect referring to Witkiewicz's last completed drama called "Shoemakers" - where are the visions of mentioned three revolutions.

    The music that will accompany the ceremony
    is Byzantine songs - Irmos and Ukrainian and Lemko folk songs - Psalms and contemporary instrumental improvisations.
    IRMOLOGY SONG is traditional sacred singing. This music
    she came to Ukraine from Byzantium. Over the centuries she absorbed
    she had a melody and Ukrainian aesthetics, she gained new ones
    music and language. New forms were created ...
    In the 17th century, music began to displace this song from
    churches. It was during this time that most of the melody remained
    recorded by the monks, thanks to which they survived and
    they have survived to this day.
    PSALMA is a folk song with a religious content. It has nothing
    in common with the Psalms of the Holy Bible. It is rather folk
    interpretation of Christianity, variations on the topic of life
    saints ... On the one hand, the psalms are close to music
    church, on the other are related to folk songs.

    The inspiration for workshops was the slogan "Free space". During the workshop skills of improvisation, musical interpretation of the image, musical interpretation of words - keys, and mobile form were developed. Thesis, those aspects of music those are maximally associated with freedom and openness to creativity. But the boundaries of creative freedom in team work were also examined - finding a delicate balance between the individual expression of a team member and submission, to a shared vision and careful listening to what other group members propose and attentiveness and to what is happening in the environment. This is a prerequisite for contributing to music. Part of the workshop and the resulting song was to lead the band independently through signs and signals during the course of the song - as an expression of equality and a kind of musical parliamentarism. The aim of the project was to inspire participants to their own individual creative expression, acquire the ability to interact creatively in a group, familiarize themselves with various aspects of contemporary music and teachers' creative workshop as well as an intergenerational meeting, joint work on the preparation of the song and experience of the stage performance. The workshop was attended by people wishing to expand their experience with elements of group improvisation and the practice of musical humanities. "Purchase of Sounds" has already a 12-year tradition.

    IMPROVISATION WORKSHOPS FOR CHILDREN “OPOWIEDZ MI BAJKĘ “ (“TELL ME A FAIRY” )

    Izabela Buchowska - cello
    Iwona Jędruch - multiinstrumentalist
    Małgorzata Kołcz – double bass
    Bartosz Kołsut - accordion
    Jarosław Siwiński - synthesizer
    Marcin Skaba - violin
    Bartosz Smorągiewicz - saxophone
    Grzegorz Ociepka - actor

    Improvisation workshops for children are the original idea of Małgorzata Kołcz. It involves the practical contact of children and their parents with contemporary music and fun sound, combined with the viewing and sound interpretation of illustrations from picture books, under the guidance of professional musicians.
    Workshops redirected to children in two age groups: 3-5 and 6-8 years. Children during their classes are accompanied by their parents or guardians, thanks to which the theme of improvisation becomes closer to an adult. Such workshops last about 90 minutes, with a break for a small snack. The version of classes for pre-school and early-school groups (without parents) takes about 50 minutes without interruption. The workshops consist of conversations with musicians and presentation of instruments, games with sound, individual and collective improvisations (including movement), and viewing picture books and telling illustrations, then interpreted by soundtracks by improvising musicians.

    The project was co-financed by the Minister of Culture and National Heritage from the CulturePromotion Fund under the "Accessible Culture" Program.
    The projects co-financed by the Ursynów District of the Capital City of Warsaw.

    SHINING: SZABOLCS ESZTENYI, RYSZARD LATELCKI, HUBERT ZEMLER
    A small work with 4 soloists and visual layer. Multimedia form: Photography and classical music with elements of free improvisation. Duration: approx. 60 min.
    The song LŚNIENIE (from the Photographic Score series) is a journey into the space of poetic photography. A group of improvising composers refers to the work of Romanian photographer Andreia Baciu. Andrei Baciu is the Romanian "poet of photography". He creates very subtle, economical images with a strong, poetic message. The light that the photographer manages to see and capture is extraordinary. Usually very subtle, oneiric, mystical, but sometimes they draw very sharply, in contrast. And this is also the musical piece inspired by the light in the photographs of Adreia Baciu: sparkle with the colors of the rainbow (in the spring), burnt by the light of summer and scattered in the thicket of grass, monochrome black and white in winter; the light barely shining through the treetops in the old forest, emphasizing the majesty of the Carpathians, stopped in the interior of an old family house abandoned for years...
