Marcin is a great musician. No, I mean, GREAT musician. He reads and writes scores as if he reads this text. He is very creative as well. But the thing that makes him different than most of other musicians / artists is, he is very reliable. I hope our cooperation with him will continue no matter in which continent we meet again.
