Admission
free entry
Ala Kryształ – a trio moving in an area of mutual, subtle spectral and sound interactions.

Visual composition created by Monika Kuczyniecka during live-act is accompanied by music animation by Radosław Drwęcki and Marcin Karnowski, played by acoustic and electronic instruments.

Telling a story, they focus on immediacy and temporariness; they adapt the existing space to the needs of a specific show. Every installation is a separate entirety and is a distinct artistic situation. Monika Kuczyniecka uses sample video and material selected intuitively to individual shows, enlivening the matter striving to achieve a more or less abstract story. Radosław Drwęcki (synthesizers, sampler, looper) and Marcin Karnowski (Handpan, SPDS) react musically to an image or inspire a direction in visual searches.
