Kovalczyk is a talented young producer, composer and vocalist with a unique voice. He is a finalist of the 3rd edition of the Polish Idol program and the author of the well-received album „KOVALCZYK BIG BAND PROJECT”, which was noticed in several European countries, but also in Japan, Lebanon and Israel. He just released his new single and music video entitled „In The Name of What.” The work is composed of four French horns and a voice! And it is the only composition of its kind in the world. The exceptionally original sounding song was also released on a 7 ” vinyl.
New Kovalczyk project is a decisive step further in his musical work. „Together with the Mazo Horn Quartet collective, we managed, without giving up on the „pop” melody, to create a song with depth and soul,” says Kovalczyk. „The theme of the song is the contemporary world and the ongoing wars and armed conflicts, but also the very nature of a man, a human being able to love and hate with the same power, build and then destroy, give life and take it „- he adds. In the recording of „In The Name of What”, the selection of instruments – the French horn – is not without significance. In olden days war was declared by them. However, in this work, the composer consciously gave them the opposite meaning, calling them through them to bring peace in the world.
The music video showing the story of eternal interpersonal war full of emotions and metaphors and the fight between good and evil is also noteworthy. The artist himself and young talented filmmakers Aleksandra Fornal and Olek Leydo are responsible for the creation of the music video.
