The Loneliness of Sound

Jacek Piotr Bławut
Samotność dźwięku
Poland 2012 / 26’

Tomasz Sikorski is a little-known composer whose life was seriously marked by communism in Poland. The lack of freedom and ability to discover himself, lack of understanding for his work by an artistic milieu that rejected the extreme simplicity of his music left an indelible mark on his personality. We follow the fate of a musician whose amazing talent and extreme sensitivity went hand-in-hand with equally great loneliness.
