Blood is a connective tissue. It nourishes. Cleanses. Regulates. Only a living being can create it. Attempts to engineer synthetic blood have not been successful, to date. Thus, either we “produce” it ourselves, or there will be none… Blood is always in motion. It travels throughout our bodies. In each of us, there are an estimated 96,000 kilometers of blood vessels, that pump our blood. If blood is not in motion, it clots within a few minutes. Every minute someone needs blood. One in ten patients is a recipient. One unit (450ml) is capable of saving three lives.
In art, blood is a symbol of emotions. A blood brotherhood, blood pact, or a documentsigned in blood, are eternally binding.

June on the road
The whole whirlwind of events starts already on June 9 in Warsaw at the official premiere of “The Way, The Truth, and The Life”.
Piotr Damasiewicz & Dominik Wania PREMIERE!
I cordially invite you to the concert of the duo Dominik Wania and Piotr Damasiewicz, which will take place on June 9, 2023 at 18.00, in the Concert Studio of the Polish Radio named after W. Lutosławski in Warsaw. It will be the premiere concert of the album “The Way, The Truth, and The Life – according to Artur Olender”, which consists of our adaptations of Artur Olender’s works. The album is already available on all streaming services worldwide, and on the day of the premiere concert it will also be available as a double CD album. The concert will take place as part of the Jazz.PL series organized by Two PR. The concert will be announced by Piotr Metz. It is music inspired by evangelical content, inviting you to travel deep into the sphere of spirituality and meditation on fundamental issues such as: God, Truth, Beauty and Good. We believe that experiencing it in such a beautiful and large space as the concert hall of the Polish Radio im. W. Lustosławski, will be an unforgettable contemplative experience, typical of the character of these compositions.

What is L.A.S.?
L.A.S. listening and sounding – a new concert-publishing initiative, the goal of which, in addition to recording and releasing sounds, is to promote art and music by experiencing it together on the listener-musician, artist-viewer line.
The energy built during concerts and live recordings allows for creation of unique publications, with inserts including, as a tangible result of cooperation, the audience’s impressions about the music they listened to.
L.A.S.is an artistic platform focusing on the co-creation and coexistence of unforced interpersonal relations.
It is the realization of the mutual need to share knowledge and skills, of being in harmony and with nature, of mutual respect for space, building relationships with the world, looking at what is happening around you, focusing on your own needs, listening to yourself and others, of different perception of the world, being in peace with nature and yourself, of following your intuition.
All of this guides Piotr Damasiewicz – such goals and principles, among others, are implemented in the L.A.S.
In a way, L.A.S. constitutes a platform where you can stop and ponder or talk about what is meaningful to everyone. The basis of such meetings is sound and openness to listening.
