Guitarist, drummer and composer. Moving between genres – jazz, free jazz, yass, cinema music, theatrical music. Born 15 January 1963, Bydgoszcz, Poland. He comes from a familiy with muscial traditions: his mother was a chairwoman of the Paderewski Music Society (Towarzystwo Muzyczne im. I.J. Paderewskiego).
In his teens Gwicinski started playing the drums and the guitar. After graduating from high school, he undertook medical studies, but he dropped out after couple of years. Then on he has been constantly developing his musical work.
His first band was Trytony, with Sławomir Janicki: double bass, and Jacek Bycul: drums. Trytony played a huge role in the creation of the yass scene, which was strongly associated with the club Mózg, in Bydgoszcz. Jerzy Mazzoll, Mikołaj Trzaska, and Tymon Tymański are amongst the later contributors to the yass stream.
At that time Gwińciński was the leader of three more bands: Maestro Trytony and the NonLinear Ensamble, and Henryk Brodaty, and was working on the music for a play of Alfred Jarry Ubu Roi ou les Polonais (directed by Wiesław Górski; premiere in 1995). He played the music live at every performance of the play in the Hieronim Konieczka Polish Theatre in Bydgoszcz.
He is a member of the Polish Academy of Phonography.
Tomasz Gwinciński also works as a film director. He has made some short films, e.g. Film o Józefie. Nowadays, he is preparing a feature film Gry polowe. Since 2005 he has collaborated with a theatre director Paweł Passini, and since 2008 with Wojciech Kościelniak, a theatre and musical director and an actor.
