Aka Arszyn. Born 1973 in Kalinowo, northeast Poland. He studied Russian philology at the University of Gdansk. He is a drummer focusing on rock, funk and improvisation. He has played in blues-rock, hardcore and pop bands. Topolski has collaborated with the Polish avant-pop band Kobiety (Women) and is currently collaborating with Marcin Dymiter's Emiter project. He is a drummer in the improvising, groovy pro-hip hop band Ludzie (Folks), an integral part of the multimedia collective Pracownia Ludzie (The Folks Workshop). Since 1998 Topolski has experimented with computer-music software. The main areas of his interest are electroacoustic, improvised, electronic and computer-generated music. He considers himself a big fan of interactive computer mixed-media ideas.
