The project, formed by Joanna Wnuk-Nazarowa, the managing director of the Polish Radio National Symphony Orchestra, was financed by KRRiTV (Home Council for Radio and Television), as a kind of special commission to be realized by the Polish Radio National Symphony Orchestra having its seat in Katowice. The recordings were made during the jubilee concerts of the composers on the occasion of their seventieth birthdays. The most recent formats and technologies of the image and sound recording were used in their production (DVD digital and SACD).
Music is normally supposed to be listened to. Still, it also flows through our other senses. Is it, however, connected with them in a necessary and inseparable manner? After all, we can close our eyes, open up our imagination, and let unexpected experiences flow through our minds.

The album ACOUSMATIC MUSIC presents the philosophy of music as interpreted by one of the most intriguing contemporary composers – Marcin Stańczyk.

Does music call for gender equality? It can surely defend itself. Nonetheless, the artistic advantages of excellent present-day women-composers and their eminent predecessors are worthy of being noticed and highlighted.
