Bartosz Ogrodowicz, the young talented keyboardist from Poland. From ballads to progressive music style. Just a little bit information but it was a great news when we know there’s a great talent from another part of this world. And this is interview.
1.Tell us about your biography
I was born 1989 in Wrzesnia, Poland. I have played the keyboard since I was 8 years old. Since then my music education started. After graduating from primary music school, I started composing my first songs (it was in 2001). My first debut was in 2002 at a local piano competition, which I won. With time, my music evolved to a more complicated and more interesting extent. From 2002 to 2008 I played many concerts in Poznan and in my home town. In 2008 I joined speed metal band called Resist. Among many concerts we played, I mostly enjoyed the concerts in Warsaw, Gniezno and in Ostrów Wielkopolski (in Ostrów Wielkopolski played also Scorpions). Nowadays I continue my solo career. I focus on compositions and conveying messages.
2.Why, the keyboard as a “chosen gun” for you ?
Music was always present in my life because my father was also a musician. I had a choice between many musical instruments, but I chose keyboard because it suits my character and is the best tool to express what I feel.
3.What do you feel, when you played your keyboard ?
So to speak, I move to another world. To a world where the emotions present in my compositions reign. Keyboard is the musical instrument which fulfils me.
4.What is your musical style ?
I try not to close myself in a particular music style. My music joins many styles like:
progressive rock, gothic and rock ballads.
4.The musician or the band, which influenced you much ?
I am mostly inspired by the music of Dream Theater. And as far as the musicians are concerned I admire Jordan Rudess.
5.Do you have a band or just a freelance keyboard player ?
Presently I continue my solo career.
6.Is there any sample of your creation ? i mean your discography or your project ?
At this website you can find my official demo.
And at this website you can find my all of my songs and videos.
7.Do you have any plan with your musical talents right now ? (i mean your next project ?)
I would like to continue my solo career. I also would like to create as good music as I can and play for my fans in different parts of the world.
8.Which one you choose, becoming independent band/musician or be part of music industries (i mean be a part of the great record company artist) ?
At the beginning of my career I think I would have to cooperate with a record company. However, I realize that it is very difficult to retain my character and style in show business environment. In Poland cooperation with such companies is the only way to let people know about you and about your music. Preserving my own style is very important to me, however, later on, when my music will be known I will have more freedom in expressing myself.
9. Can you tell us about your country music scene. From various genre and condition in your country.
The music scene in my country is limited mainly to pop music, techno, trance and pop rock.
Generally, Polish music scene is commercial and artificial. The true music and the true artists remain in the shadow, because they don’t sell well.
