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.
"What do you remember from 1914? The outbreak of World War I, the musical scandals of Igor Stravinsky, the production of English Dulciton, the fall of Symphonionwerke paint, the announcement of dadaist excesses in 1915, the sudden aftermath of the futuristic manifesto in 1913? These disordered impressions and symbol puzzle is a picture commented 100 years later by the new Small Instruments album Walce w Walce. The dance battle is a game of words, but also something more - seeking inspiration in what we hear today, and maybe we already heard then. Listen to everyone with your ear! 13 waltzes, for which we invited phenomenal Jean-Marc Zelwer, who wrote his waltz for Small Instruments. The album also sang beautiful voices of the legendary Moon, and Iwona Sztucka played the dulciton and (small) piano. The disc is packed in a metal box that is a cross-section ... of a cylinder!"
