Damasiewicz Project consists of young and yet experienced jazz players from Poland, by many considered the best in their field.

Damas Piotr Damasiewicz – born in Wroclaw, is a composer, trumpeter, actitvist. He studied at the academies of music in Wroclaw, Bydgoszcz and Katowice.

He founded the “Music According To Art” (MATA) association which promotes artists looking for alternative solutions in art. Apart from musicians, the association gathers people from the world of fine arts, who are open to a mutual dialogue. One of the more significant achievements in this area was the exhibition of his artwork (First Exit) in the Modern Art  Gallery BWA in Katowice. For this project, he experimented with space and form in a dialogue with “Pojęciokształty” “figures of meaning” by Stanislaw Dróżdż.  He collaborated as well with the artistic circles of academies of fine arts in Wroclaw and Katowice as a co-author of various multimedia projects.

In his work, depending on the specifics of a given undertaking, he reaches down to the language of hard bop, modal  jazz, moving towards the free jazz ideas, through the European classical music, all the way to the achievements of the new modern music, including the European improvised  music.

Damasiewicz has an opportunity to present his work within the projects Damas Ensemble “Power of the Horns” (jazz band with a double rhythm section and at least 5 winds), Damas Quartet “Mnemotaksja”, as well as in the ones where he is a collaborator:  First Exit, Escape Art Quintet. He is a member of the JazzPlaysEurope musical platform that promotes musicians and composers from six countries: France, Belgium, Germany,  Netherlands, Slovakia and Poland. Damasiewicz was awarded the 2nd Krzysztof Komeda Competition prize in the field of jazz themes.

He is laureate of the cultural prize by The Wyborcza magazine. Piotr Damasiewicz represents Poland in Take Five European Project 2013

Piotr Damasiewicz has been awarded by Polish Music Academy-Fryderyk 2013
