The fourth round of conversations with composers in the series “Contemporary Music Doesn’t Bite” [Muzyka współczesna nie gryzie] was held on October 5 at the Academy of Social Sciences in Warsaw. The guest was Jarosław Siwiński, a composer and music event organizer. Siwiński, a graduate of the Chopin Music Academy in Warsaw, often leads projects that cross the boundaries of music by working with the Children Arts Academy and established artists such as Jan Lenica, Daniel Szczechura, Frederick Rzewski, and Michalangelo Pistoletti, among others. For his projects Siwiński has received scholarships from the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, the City of Warsaw, and ZAIKS Society of Authors.
Other October guests in the series included Agnieszka Stulgińska (Oct. 11) and Adam Sławiński (Oct. 25). The meetings continue in November with Romuald Twardowski (Nov. 8 – pictured at right) and Maciej Żółtowski (Nov. 16).
