Still life, Sun Mathematics, Pascal’s Triangle, Paradox and Essence - Agnes Denes (1970-76)
Wśród wielu zajęć
zapomniałem o tym
że również trzeba
zaniedbałem ten obowiązek
lub wypełniałem go
wszystko się zmieni
zacznę umierać starannie
bez straty czasu

Krzysztof Komeda (born Krzysztof Trzciński 27 April 1931 in Poznań – 23 April 1969 in Warsaw) was a Polish film music composer and jazz pianist. Perhaps best known for his work in film scores, Komeda wrote the scores for Roman Polanski’s films Rosemary’s Baby, The Fearless Vampire Killers, Knife in the Water and Cul-de-sac. Komeda’s album Astigmatic (1965) is widely regarded as one of the most important European jazz albums.
Krzysztof Komeda died exactly 45 years ago.
In December 1968, in Los Angeles, Komeda had a tragic accident which led to a haematoma of the brain. He was pushed off an escarpment by writer Marek Hłasko during a drinking party. Roman Polański mentioned in his memoirs that as a result of friendly rough-and-tumble with Marek Hłasko, Komeda fell down and suffered head injuries. Medical treatment in the US hospital did not rescue his life. After having been transported home to Poland in coma and in terminal state, he died.
