Piotr Kurek is a Warsaw-based musician, also known as leading force behind the ever-evolving instrumental music of Pietnastka. Since 2006 he has collaborated with a long list of contemporary dance and theatre companies, music labels, and artists.

Kurek creates densely-woven tapestries of sound. His layered melodic patterns are constructed from and influenced by sounds ranging from contemporary abstractions to the melismatic ululations of primeval chants. As a performer, he often makes use of amplified organs, electric accordions, and many other unusual instruments.

Piotr Kurek has participated in numerous music and theatre festivals, including: Transmediale (Berlin), Elevate (Gratz), UH Fest (Budapest), Baltic Festival (Brugge), Traverses (Nancy), Malta International Theatre Festival (Poznan), Gdansk Dance Festival (Gdansk), Underground Theatre Festival (Aarad), Cornelius Cardew and the Art of Listening (Porto), International Festival of Modern Dance (Kovno), etc.
He is co-author of “Urban Afterimage,” a finalist at the Malta International Theatre Festival (2009), and the author of music for “NN. Tribute to Vaclav Nijinsky,” a Lublin Dance Theatre production that was nominated, in 2008, for best contemporary dance performance in Poland.
