Maciek Dobrowolski is a composer who writes music that is clear and memorable, moving freely in orchestral and electronic music – the composer willingly combines both of these worlds in his work.
Maciek has, among others, orchestral recordings, recorded soundtracks for full-length films, full electronic music albums, chamber pieces for string quartet and projects in which he combines the powerful sounds of the orchestra with electronics.
Reaching for the minimum means of expression, I always try to achieve the maximum effect – simplicity that transcends the form and the executive apparatus is for me the key to “aligning” emotions with the audience.
