Marta Śniady

born in 1986 in Pabianice, Poland, based in Lodz and Wroclaw. She graduated with honors composition with prof. Bronislaw Kazimierz Przybylski (2010) at the Music Academy in Lodz. She participated in various masterclasses and workshops conducted among others by Simon Steen-Andersen, Chaya Czernowin, Jennifer Walshe and Rebecca Saunders.

In her work as a composer, Marta Śniady follows the vision of a music that refers to different art forms. Furthermore, she feels that new music is an important medium of social communication, which is why she doesn’t treat it as pure sound art, but works on building multi-layered references and connections.

These ideas are mirrored in different works, which has been performed at several important international and Polish festivals of contemporary music as e. g. Warsaw Autumn, Sacrum Profanum, Musica Electronica Nova, Frau Musica (nova), Pulsar Festival and Klang Festival. She also worked with ensembles and performers such as Ensemble Garage, Kwartludium, ElletroVoce, Spółdzielnia Muzyczna Contemporary Ensemble, Esbjerg Ensemble, New Music Orchestra, Duo van Vliet and others. 

In 2016 she began Advanced Postgraduate Diploma studies in composition with Simon Steen-Andersen and Niels Rønsholdt at The Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus.  She is a board member of International Music Festival Warsaw Autumn since 2017. She holds PhD from the Academy of Music in Lodz, where she has been teaching since 2015.
