ElettroVoce Duo arose out of the collaboration of two composers: Agata Zubel and Cezary Duchnowski. Both are characterized by a unique approach to music - fascination with timbre, an expansion of performance resources, eternal seeking. For Zubel, who is also active as an avantgarde vocalist, there is a desire to discover a new means of vocal expression; for Duchnowski, it is a search for new contexts for traditional instruments. This found particular expression in the utilization of the human voice and the new possibilities afforded by the computer. 

ElettroVoce Duo has performed at numerous contemporary music Festivals in Poland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, Denmark, Latvia, Ukraine, and Russia. Their interpretations (often their own compositions) have been recorded many times by Polish Radio, as well as presented by radio and television broadcasters. In 2005 the artists received a special prize at the prestigious International Gaudeamus Interpreters Competition, in 2008 Wroclaw Music Award for CD “ElettroVoce”.
