In this project Tymański returns to string bass and chamber jazz, which was his fascination when he performed with a cult band Miłość. In those sonoristic instrumental explorations he is accompanied by well-known musicians of the Tri-City jazz scene: saxophonist Ireneusz Wojtczak, guitarist Marcin Gałązka, pianist Michał Wandzilak and drummer Jacek Prościński. At 7p.m. the film You Are God by Leszek Dawid will be shown. After that we invite you to a meeting with the director and cinematographer Łukasz Gutt.
