Born in 1966. He is a versatile percussionist who takes advantage of the exotic and ethnic character of his instruments, but who derives sound from the wide range of percussion elements of a symphony orchestra as well as from the surrounding (ordinary - extraordinary) objects (water, metal, wood, air, barrels, pipes, floor, bow, etc. etc.). The range of his sound extends from whisper, splash and murmur to sophisticated sounds of the percussion contemporary music to crack and clangour of crushed metal and broken glass. He used to play and record with many musicians and groups, including: Stuckonceiling, Mazzoll and Arhythmic Perfection, Arhythmic Brain, Loskot, Maestro Trytony, Pieces of Brain (with Caroline Krabel and John Dobie),Jon Rose, Yass Big Band, Milosc , Pink Freud, Diffusion Ansamble, Kyle Bruckmann, Klaus Janek.

The best young Polish clarinettist (born in 1968 in Gdansk) started playing the clarinet at 8, inspired by the works of the great contemporary Polish composers such as Lutoslawski and Górecki.
