Adrian Gierakowski

Born in Warsaw, Poland, where he received thirteen years of education in classical piano performance and music theory. In 2007 moved to the UK to begin studies in composition and music technology at the University of Huddersfield. Here he developed interest in acousmatic music as well as software programming (using mainly Max/Msp) which deepened during a year spent at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (2008/2009). During his stay in Illinois he also studied algorithmic composition and had his first experiences with live electronics and free improvisation. His recent works include pieces for cello and live electronic, piano and electronics with multichannel diffusion system. He has also composed purely instrumental pieces: two quartets, a duo for piano and alto flute and solo pieces for clarinet, flute and percussion. He is inspired by a whole spectrum of music form Palestrina and Bach, through Chopin to Stockhausen, Sciarrino, Squarepusher and Venetian Snares.
