Wojciech Kilar was born in Lviv, but he spent most of his artistic life, until his death in 2010, in Katowice. It is in this city that he wrote his greatest chamber and symphonic music, but also film scores. Kilar collaborated with the most outstanding Polish directors: Andrzej Wajda, Roman Polański, Krzysztof Kieślowski, but also foreign ones: Francis Ford Coppola or Jace Campion.
The project "ElectroKilar" was created a year ago, on the occasion of the 85th anniversary of the birth of Kilar. The most wonderful pieces composed for films (including Dracula directed by Francis Ford Coppola) and masterpieces of chamber music, such as Orawa, are presented in new, surprising arrangements prepared by Wiesław Świderski and Szymon Padoła. This Katowice DJ, composer and producer undertook a risky but successful task of including electronic music in the works of Kilar. Their joint arrangements, which he performs together with the AUKSO Chamber Orchestra under the baton of Marek Moś, open the music of Wojciech Kilar to new audiences.
