He has also performed in the Beliah / Bober improvised music duo at the Ad Libitum International Improvised Music Festival. Since 2019, he has been exploring the boundaries between sound art and both written and oral literature. In 2020 he carried out a project in Düsseldorf and Warsaw combining works for musicians, participants / performance artists, and a sound installation. Between February and May 2021, with the support and patronage of Strefa WolnoSłowa (Free Word Zone), Instytut Otwarty (Open Institute), and Jasna 10 – Krytyka Polityczna’s Cultural Club in Warsaw, he continued this project in the form of open meetings in Haller Sq. in Warsaw, which involved reading and listening to Polish, Ukrainian, and Belarusian poetry.
