  • About me

    Marcin Gałażyn (1975) - an accordionist, composer, arranger and session musician. 

    I was born in 1975 in Augustów, I live in Kraków. I am an accordionist, composer, arranger and session musician. I started to play the accordion at the age of 7 at the State Primary School 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. I was a co-founder of Que Passa group and played with them for eight years performing improvised music in a flamenco and latin jazz style. Since 1999 I have been a member of Motion Trio group.

    I am also the music coordinator of the new film festival NEW EARTH International Film Festival 

    Motion Trio

     

    With Motion Trio I have performed in 41 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.

     

    My creativity

     

    I am an artist with a colourful imagination with many years of experience.  As a composer I operate in a wide variety of styles and have no defined creative formula. When composing I treat melody as the main pillar of the music, with characteristic motility and unformulaic rhythm.  In my instrumentation both orchestral and electronic genres I especially use the accordion, treating it often as the lead instrument. 

    I work with TVP Historia, TVP 3, IPN - composing music for tv programs.

     

    - The film "Diary of a beholder" (directed by Jarosław Migoń) with my music received three awards: "Intermedia - Globe GOLD", "Intermedia Special Award - MAGIC EYE", "Intermedia Special Award - GRAND AWARD" on World Media Festival 2017 in Hamburg. This 60 minute film contains about 56 min.of music (26 tracks - 10 are composed and performed only on accordion).

     

    - The film "Szczęście Świata" (directed by Michał Rosa) received award "Best Film Music" 2016 - 41 Film Festival in Gdynia for Janusz Wojtarowicz and Motion Trio (Janusz Wojtarowicz, Paweł Baranek, Marcin Gałażyn).
