“Mironczarnia” is a poem
written by a Polish poet Miron Białoszewski, who was a rather untypical
writer. I admire his poetry because a large part of his work contains very
distinctive sounds and meanings. He creates a lot of wordplay and
neologisms that in my opinion just sound great. I also appreciate the
specific and abstract style of his poems. “Mironczarnia” is a good example
of his poetry (also one of his most known poems).
It’s somewhat abstract with a lot of neologisms, describing the author’s
struggle when trying to write a poem.

(edited on 2013-08-30):
This one was finished during the last holidays. At first it was a part of a rock ballad that I wrote several years ago for my band, but when I became more and more interested in choral music, I found that the idea, on which my song was based, would suit choral aesthetics very well. So I rethought the whole piece once more and arranged it for choir.
Farewell in China
(edited on 2013-10-23):
The piece was commisioned by the Medical University of Gdansk Choir (which
is one of the oldest student ensembles in Poland) to open the jubilee
concert on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the artistic work of
Maestro Jerzy Szarafiński. The idea of enriching the show with a work
composed specially for the event came little more than a week before the
date of the concert. Therefore there was not much time for writing and the
additional challenge was the fact that the choir has maximum two
rehearsals to prepare it (as it turned out, there was only one). The
conductor responsible for preparing the show agreed to my idea that if in
the entire concert (lasting almost two hours) there is not a single
contemporary piece, it would be a good idea to create a modern composition
based on the last name of the jubilarian. I decided to write a scetch
score and tell more things directly to the conductor, because time was
extremely valuable in this situation.
