Jan Paweł Przegendza

Pitch relationships between sounds or post-tonal harmonic illumination function in his works only as a color parameter, which is one of many components in music creation. In his (un)conventional use of instrumentation, he focuses not on effect but on sonority. The artistic stance he adopts thus makes it possible to expose the objective beauty that follows the assumptions of absolute music, which, accompanied by a vivid, existing, and planned sound at a given moment, allows melodies, chords, and rhythms to resound. He was born in 1996 in Zabrze, Poland. He graduated from the composition and the organ at the Karol Lipiński Academy of Music in Wrocław. He also studied under Prof Julian Gembalski (organ and improvisation) at the Academy of Music in Katowice and Prof Martin Haselböck (organ) at the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst in Vienna. He is also actively involved in ear training education. He cooperates with the Ear Training and Musical Imagination Workshop and the Department of Organ, Harpsichord, and Early Music at the AMKL in Wrocław.
