In Collaboration with Tehran Records,
The debut CD of Polish-Iranian composer and conductor Martyna Kosecka (b. 1989, Gdynia, Poland) exhibits her continuous searching for unheard combination of sounds.
She uses a great variety of styles and techniques in her works: from clearly atonal music to compositions connected with post-spectralism and neo-sonorism. Recently her main goal is searching for new exceptional sound fields in music with help of electronic processing of acoustic instruments.
The album exhibits the artist’s chamber music in live recordings from various concerts and performers.
