"Wespół Zespół" is a concert with compositions prepared by Krzysztof Cybulski and Sławomir Wojciechowski in cooperation with youth from music schools. Both compositions involve the use of traditional and unconventional instruments (including instruments constructed by Krzysztof Cybulski), sound objects and computer applications for sound processing. The program will be complemented by pieces and improvisations performed by both composers and musicians of the Flow Unit band. The concert was preceded by workshops with young people conducted by Krzysztof Cybulski, Sławomir Wojciechowski and musicians of the flow unit band.

● Krzysztof Cybulski - Aeroklang (for Pneumatophones and Feedback Ocarinas) The composition is based on instruments created by the author and their unusual sound and performance properties. The framework form of the piece, composed of several scenes, is filled by the performers with semi-improvised sound and movement figures during performance. ● Sławomir Wojciechowski – Tom-Tony The performers play their own instruments (violin, flute, clarinet, guitar, etc.), sound objects and small percussion instruments, and some of them support applications (Ableton and MaxMSP) that enable processing the sounds of live instruments. The beginning of the piece is a set of instructions and scenarios prepared by the composer specifying forms of collective improvisation and sound processing methods. Based on these scenarios, the performers improvise, dialogue, learn the various results of electronic modulations and thus create the sound material of the entire composition. ● Simon Steen-Andersen – Studies for String Instrument I, II ● Collective improvisations under the direction of composers
