Marek Pasieczny: A Talented Composer

By Miche Archetto:

Kikuidataki is the name of the smallest Bird in Japan and the World’s smallest hummingbird of its kind. The native script is “King birds”. Kikuidataki is characterized by its yellow crown crest. I strived to capture and imitate its movements through sonoristic and colouristic effects. In depicting the Japanese impression, the main melody was inspired and based on the Japanese melody “Itsuki no komuriuta” (Lullaby of Itsuki).

This is what Marek Pasieczny wrote as a comment about this video, where he shows his amazing talent as player and composer.
