• 'A mess, meaning a multitude of perspectives as a cause of interpersonal communication disorders' is a musical concept by Bartosz Kościelniak. They are all together. There is her and there is him. There is living, dead, male, female, fat, skinny, short and tall tone. There are lies, honesty, boredom and cool moments all along; there is loudness, meekness, brightness, darkness….there is cash and people gone.
