Katarzyna Borek and Vojto Monteur (Wojciech Orszewski) have achieved numerous successes at international festivals and competitions. They have been awarded for their music both individually and as a duo, especially in the field of film and theatre music ( i.a. they won Grand Prix at the International Theatre Festival in Nitra for the best composition and performance of theatre music in Slovakia in 2013-2014 season.
The duo's recording début – album entitled CLASSICA and ELECTRONICA "Tempus Fantasy", was released by Warner Classics label in June 2014. It is a result of a clash of two personalities emerging from different musical backgrounds. In this album,the pianist KATARZYNA BOREK – (grand piano/Rhodes piano) and producer VOJTO MONTEUR (electronics / guitar), basing on the works of classics, make a brave shift of their stylistics. The artists' approach towards the work of impressionists and 20th century composers is far from slavish following the original versions – it's a starting point for creating their own compositions. Thanks to the sound of the Rhodes and grand piano combined with electronics, the duo creates an personal vision of music, rooted deeply in serene, “Neoclassical” ambient- piano timbres, but also very modern and electronic. They freely cross the boundaries between classical, experimental and club music. Their concerts are truly hypnotic shows, exploring the interaction of sound and visuals (made by VJ Tomek Spera / www.spera.pl). The album “Tempus Fantasy” was highly acclaimed, received many enthusiastic reviews and was awarded the “WARTO” cultural prize by Gazeta Wyborcza daily. It was also a musical basis and an inspiration for a spectacular dance theatre performance “Tempus Fantasy” (directed by Jacek Gębura), which had its première with live music performed by the duo on the large stage of the Capitol Musical Theatre in Wrocław on 22.11.2014. The show combining dance, music and visual art turned out to be a great success, it played to a packed audience and received outstanding reviews.
