Born 1978 in Lodz. Solo project: 8rolek.

His debut 'Ptak Mechaniczny EP' (means 'mechanical bird') released by mik.musik.!. was acclaimed as the best polish electronic debut, one of the records of 2001, sparkling spring on provincial desert etc etc. Actions were fun.

The music consists of subtle shifts of synchronic and asynchronic rhythm layers, of small irregular looping segments, noisy reverbs and a non-direct stereophonic play. In his approach Bartek is using not only regular laptop way of constructing music on stage, but is involving also accordion and small toys for very unique effects. Second album "Dziewiata gratis" came out in 2002 showing new, more focused, more consequent and communicative approach.

The newest CD titled "umpomat" was released in january 2005. With no doubt this is the most matured eightrolekian construction till now, taking essence from the whole multiplex world of Bartek's questions, in almost "proverbian" way is giving us a crossing point on the road between informatic approach, programme-programmistic and the path of pure humanism, or, even, its traces are clearly humanitarian.

Works also as softwaremaker/programmer with strong interest in building interactive virtual/internet soundtoys and sound-games.
