Małe Instrumenty (Small Instruments) are a band exploring new sounds using a wide array of small instruments. The instruments used in their sonic experiments feature an ever expanding array of professional instruments, sound toys made for children or naive in nature, strange musical inventions as well as a whole array of small items that aren't really instruments but do make a sound. The music created in this way reveals unique colours of sound sometimes beautiful and fine, sometimes surprising and insightful, sometimes exposing the incomplete nature of the sound created and allowing ears to feast on this restriction. All this means that the band is constantly faced with the need to look for new creative solutions.
The group was started by Pawel Romanczuk in 2006, other members are Tomasz Orszulak, Jędrzej Kuziela, Iwona Sztucka and Magdalena Nekanda-Trepka. In July 2007 the band made its debut at Era New Horizons Film Festival in Wroclaw / Poland and has since worked on many music projects under the name of Male Instrumenty. The group has collaborated with many prominent art organizations and artists in Poland and Europe. The band has also perfomed at many festivals and recorded music for films, broadcasts, audiobooks, etc.
Antonisz is the group's debut album, and contains compositions by Julian Józef Antonisz - one of the most intriguing animated film directors. Antonisz's works remind us that he was not only an innovative director, inventor, constructor, artist and philosopher - but also a musician and composer. The eleven tracks on the album were originally composed for his short movies during 1967-87, and are re-interpreted Małe Instrumenty with their musical experience and their own instrumental specificity.
