The ElettroVoce Duo arose out of the collaboration of two composers: Agata Zubel and Cezary Duchnowski. Both are characterised by a unique approach to music: fascination with timbre, expansion of performance resources, and eternal seeking. For Zubel, who is also active as an avant-garde vocalist, it is a desire to discover new means of vocal expression; for Duchnowski, a search for new contexts for traditional instruments. This resulted in the use of the human voice and new possibilities afforded by the computer. 

ElettroVoce Duo has performed at numerous contemporary music Festivals in Poland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Ukraine, and Russia. Works in their rendition (most often their own compositions) have been recorded on many occasions by the Polish Radio, as well as presented by radio and television broadcasters. In 2005 the artists received a special prize for best ensemble with electronics at the prestigious International Gaudeamus Interpreters Competition. In 2008, the Duo was awarded the Wrocław Music Prize for its record ElettroVoce
