"Film is the only inspiration and ultimate goal for me. I do not compose any other music. It turned out that my gift for composing is limited to the cinema. I don't know what kind of feelings I should evoke in audiences in concert halls." (Michał Lorenc)

"You don't compose music for a film but for SOMEBODY. The same film, if made by a different man, would have a completely different music." (Michal Lorenc)'s picture
