Brzoska/Marciniak/Markiewicz – an experimental trio fusing poetry with electric guitar and trumpet into open compositions and improvisations. A trio on the lookout for the consonance of sounds and assonance of words in the most optimal formula.

Published his verse in the majority of leading Polish literary and cultural periodicals as well as internationally, among others in Sodobnost (Slovenia), Zeichen & Wunder (Germany), Cordite Poetry Review (Australia), and in numerous anthologies published domestically and abroad.

At present, he is also a member io, a trio specialising in contemporary chamber music.
