Woodsmoke Avantgarde Trio is a project founded by two young musicians from Poland accompanied by a few other instrumentalists. Their goal is to mix dense old-time ambience with progressive melodies and rhythms into music sought by fans of modern instrumental art. To achieve this they exploit sounds of different acoustic instruments: from piano, guitars and strings to accordion, flutes and cellos. Their inspiration comes from many genres such as ambient, jazz, post rock, folk and classical music. They have just finished working on their debut album ’Places from a distance'. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
