Polish and American musicians will join forces to present music by a selection of Polish composers born in the 1970s. This generation of artists can be called the Open Borders Generation-the first generation of artists to live their entire professional lives following the end of Communism in 1989. Poland's newly open borders allowed these young musicians to continue their education abroad, broadening their experiences and exposing them to a large multidimensional range of musical cultures. Access to new technology allowed for experimentation with new aesthetics and new mediums. This is why the music of this newest generation of Polish composers is characterized by a multitude of individual musical languages, the courage to speak in one's own voice, a consciousness of creating an independent aesthetic and an awareness of the advantages and risks of their artistic choices.
