Dominik Kisiel

Dominik Kisiel
Pianist improviser, composer, PhD student at the S. Moniuszko Academy of Music in Gdansk, Poland.
As a pianist he strives to maximize the sonic possibilities of the piano and seeks harmonic relationships that create naturally beautiful consonances. Improvisation is the most important part as music therapy, soul release and connection with the universe. The music, while telling stories, flows in an uninterrupted stream, taking those participating on an incredible journey beyond the everyday perception of the world and experience of reality.
It is a peculiar exploration of the sound space at the level of conveying emotions, discovering geometry and cosmic energy in music, inspired by its different variations – from the Middle Ages, to the Modern Music. The confrontation of the whole with reality, life and musical experiences form the picture of music created by Dominik.
