Henryk Górecki

Henryk Mikołaj Górecki (born December 6, 1933 in Czernica, Silesia, Poland. Died 12 November 2010 in Katowice, Poland) was a Polish composer of classical music. Though his earlier work in the late 1950s and 1960s were characterised by a dissonant modernism influenced by Nono, Stockhausen and contemporaries Penderecki and Serocki, he moved in the mid 1970's towards a 'pure' sacred minimalist sound encapsulated by the 1976 Symphony No. 3.

Crypsis

(Crypsis, the metal band can be found here Crypsismetal ) Crypsis, who is also known as Grzegorz Luzynski, was born in Zielona Gora (Poland), in 1985. When he was 6, his parents decided to go to Holland, to Denekamp to be precise. As a kid, he always saw the dj's from then behind the wheels of steel. This made this much impression, that he wanted to stand there too. After alot of savings, he could afford his first DJ-Set. He bought alot of records, but at a point, he wanted more. So he started producing records himself.
