Paulina Załubska is a composer, born in 1984. She is interested in combining different media: instruments, electronics and images. Her music can be heard not only in concert halls, but also in cinemas and theatres.
Paulina Załubska graduated with distinction from compositional studies at the Academy of Music in Kraków. She attended composition classes led by Professor Krystyna Moszumańska-Nazar, and then continued her studies with Professor Anna Zawadzka-Gołosz. The artist also completed a postgraduate course in film and computer music and audiovisual art at the Academy of Music in Łódź, in cooperation with the National Film, Television and Theatre School. Załubska is currently pursuing a doctoral degree at her alma mater under the supervision of Professor Marek Chołoniewski.
What is also worthy of distinction is Załubska’s Climax II, in which sensitivity to the nuances of colour blends ideally with the sophisticated sense of dramaturgy. The live sound of amplified violins combines with the electroacoustic material in such a way that it is impossible to separate sounds and identify their origin (Maciej Jabłoński, Ruch Muzyczny).
Załubska studied instrumentation with Professor Krzysztof Penderecki. In addition, she has participated in many international composition workshops led by Kaija Saariaho, Dieter Mack, Per Nørgård, François Sarhan, Paweł Mykietyn, Marta Ptaszyńska, Jerzy Kornowicz and Tadeusz Wielecki, among others.
Paulina Załubska’s pieces have been performed in Poland and abroad (in the Czech Republic, Greece, Germany, Italy and Ukraine). Her compositions and works have been presented at the Warsaw Autumn International Festival of Contemporary Music, the Ostrava Days Festival, the Contrasts Festival of Contemporary Music in Lviv, the New Music Triduum aXes in Kraków, the Ryszard Bukowski Music Days and the Audio Art Festival in Kraków. She has worked with students from the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków and the Film School in Łódź. In 2015 she took part in the project London Philharmonic Orchestra – Young Composers. Her work Into the Darkness was premiered by the famous orchestra conducted by Magnus Lindberg.
Paulina Załubska is the author of chamber, solo, orchestral and electronic music as well as film soundtracks. She likes to combine different media: instruments, electronics and video. The composer has long been interested in the creation of new sonic space for live instruments by mixing them with electronic music.
