We met in college.
How would you describe your music to a deaf person?

If you could decide to put your own track in any film ever made or yet to be made, what film/track would it be?

“Baza Ludzi Umarłych” (Base of Dead People)- good old polish movie about truck drivers, who risk their lives carrying wood in mountains in late ’50 in post war Poland.
