A mixer’s job is to make the song work, not the mix work."

Piotr Jóźwiak - Innovative music producer, sound engineer and drummer from Gdańsk, Poland. Having a degree as an instrumentalist with specialisation on percussion instruments from Felix Nowowiejski’s Music School of 1st and 2nd degree and a diploma of sound engineering from the School of Audiovisual Techniques “NuWave”, he has comprehensive understanding of both technical and creative side of music production. He has been working on multiple accomplished projects of which the most important is the collaboration as a sound engineer with Artur Sychowski, a prominent Polish pianist and composer. This collaboration include projects such as HeART Impression Show – project uniquely combining piano music, dance, lights, confetti and film.

As having degrees both as a musician and a sound engineer, he can provide unique expertise, co-operational skills and high-class results for artists alike.

Piotr felt that being a percussionist is not enough fulfilling as he wanted to explore all the possibilities of recording, modifying and creating sounds leading up to developing the optimal sound design. Having a keen interest in technology and long experience in using music programs, ever since young age, made him realise that his passion is in sound engineering and music production. He explored this interest through making the sound design and production for the HeART Impression Show. His skills in sound engineering were realised and he was invited to give a sound engineering presentation and a performance in a notable National Percussion Workshop – event, executed by Gdańsk music school and Warsaw Centre of Artistic education, in co-operation with multiple well-known professors of the field.

Despite of his young age, Piotr has collaborated with extraordinary international artists on multiple occasions. These collaborations include talents such as Emmanuel Sejourne, a French composer and percussionist, Javier Nandayapa, a mexican Marimba artist, in a well-known classical music festival Gdynia Classica Nova in 2014 and 2015 in Poland. Piotr is doing close co-operation with prof. dr hab. Piotr Sutt, a well-known percussionist and a professor teaching in two prosperous music academies. These diverse collaborations have advanced Piotr’s co-operational and professional skills and broaden his understanding of musical possibilities.

Furthermore, he has been participating in concerts in distinguished cultural venues such as Grand Theatre National Opera in Warsaw, Musical Theatre in Gdynia and Ergo Arena in Gdańsk and performed in renowned festivals including La Folle Journee in 2013. Through all these experiences he has unique know-how in executing various concerts both in artist’s and sound engineer’s aspect.
