Summary/Abstract: Selected electronic compositions of Marek Czerniewicz are the subject of the present article. Czerniewicz is a representative of the circle of artists of the young generation from Gdańsk music enviromnment. His artistic interests are a combination of various trends and experiences. Czerniewicz openly experiments with the latest computer technology, using electronic matter, concrete music and the world of natural sounds. These three sources coexist in the composer's pieces as equal sound media. Formal, acoustic and expressive aspects of electronic compositions created by Czerniewicz are, however, dominated entirely by the ideological sphere of his artistic pieces. The message grounded in philosophical-spiritual domain, each time becomes the basis of his artistic creation. The composer creates his semantic message, using the latest means of music technology.
