Michal is a bassist, music composer and visual artist who's set on a quest of searching for new visual and musical experiments and atmospheric moods.

In the last 18 years as an active bassplayer, Michal played hundreds of live gigs across Europe with his bands or as a session player. Besides creating his own music, He occasionally works on rearranging songs of his favourite bands producing not-your-average cover videos. These have met with good acclaim and are regularly shared at popular sites and online magazines for bassists such as Bass Musician Magazine, No Treble, Bass Love,… and bass gear companies like Darkglass and Sadowsky bass. In pursuit of constant improving as a musician he reguarly attends workshops with top names in the bass guitar world (Marcus Miller, Billy Sheehan, Victor Wooten, Czech Jazz workshop, and many others...)
The release of first single “The Riddle” by his new band Black Hole Constellation has stirred up a great deal of positive feedback making its way all the way to Berlin Music Video Awards 2016 nomination.
