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.
"After the music of Antonisz and Chopin, whose compositions were featured on the first two albums of the band, here we have the first album with the songs of the founder of the band Paweł Romańczuk, so in a sense the first proper. What is here and what is not here would not write on cowhide. I close my eyes. Roadside forge of small instruments, which is multitude. And its lace walls, fragile, composed of pages of long-time reading of avant-garde rock, the Kobayan phenomenon of Zeuhl, electro-acoustic sculpture and pleasant French music in a cap. Sweaty smiths wheeze angrily. The problem of chemistry in the physics environment. Then the greasy battleship appears out of nowhere and, as if nothing else, pokes its nose in the anthill. Ants are making him boon. Storks are walking on the table board, Ennio M came to the indulgence himself. Through the gaps between the boards I see a pile of pianos covered with a leaky communion suit. Where do lions live? What this is about? Rolled up sleeves, in the quietness of the spirit, urgent tapping of forged alloys to get the only weave." - Wojcek Czern.
