|Bio

Strycharski Dominik (born 1975) - Composer, Recorder player, Singer, Improviser, Performer, Teacher and Writer.

Plays and composes contemporary jazz in many electric and acoustic incarnations, contemporary music, electronic music, music for the theatre, post-hip-hop, noise as well as various types of improvised music in his own Pulsarus Band, Prophetic Fall and Organic Panic Quartett.

He also works with contemporary vocal techniques, and as one of the few in Poland plays improvised and jazz music on modern recorders/blockflutes.

Recorded over 20 albums with many different projects and bands.
Composed music for over 75 theatre plays, dance shows, films and various audiovisual projects.

He is widely recognized as the creator of theatre music.
He made music for many theater productions utilizing a great number of genres and styles for Michal Zadara, Wojciech Klemm, Lukasz Kos, Katarzyna Raduszynska, Anna Badora, Jan Peszek, Wojtek Urbanski, Grazyna Kania and Natalia Soltysik.

He also creates Doministry, multi-dimensional solo project that combines contemporary electronic music, performance and electro-ambient. This project is developed with the voice and its total electronic transformation. Improvisation plays a very important role in the project, open to all possible influences and concepts.

With a DJ and producer CueFx he co-creates BandFx which has already released its debut album in the internet label, and was a member of Kostas New Progrram and has released three albums and played many concerts with it.
