Marcin Gałażyn (1975) - composer, an accordionist, pianist, arranger, session musician.
I am a composer / sound designer with many years of experience. As a composer I operate in a wide variety of styles and create music for film, TV programs and commercials. When composing I treat melody as the main pillar of the music and base my songs on beautiful melodic lines. I work with directors: Jarosław Migoń and Piotr Jaworski / and: TVP, TVP Historia, TTV, TV4, Constantin Entertainment Polska, IPN.
I was born in Augustów, I live in Krakow. I started learning to play the accordion at the age of seven at the PSM I st. In Augustów. Later I finished PSM II grade in Białystok (accordion class). I then studied the accordion at The Kraków Academy of Music.
I have won numerous accordion, chamber and jazz competitions. In 1997 I founded the group Que Passa (flamenco-latin jazz), with which I toured eight years.
Since 1999 I have been a member of Motion Trio
With Motion Trio I have performed in 43 countries at different venues, which include "Carnegie Hall" in New York, "Skirball Center of Performing Arts" in Los Angeles, "Konzerthaus" in Vienna, The Barbican Centre in London. I have performed on six continents, participating in festivals of classical, rock, jazz, world and contemporary music. I have participated in Master classes including at The University of Chicago, Paris Conservatory and The Royal Academy of Music in London. Together with Motion Trio I have recorded 13 CD's.
