Summary/Abstract: The text is an attempt to define the space in which an artistic work exists and lives, in this case a musical work. It is an attempt to confirm the existence of the semantic function of this form of art. The author evokes a folk musical quotation “Kajze mi się podzioł”, a Silesian insurrectionary song, which in the 20th century became a creative inspiration for outstanding representatives of the Silesian composing school – H.M. Górecki and R. Gabryś – the Third Symphony of the Sorrowful Songs and “Kajze mi się podzioł” for soprano and piano. At the same time, the fate of these musical works is strongly situated in the Katowice city space, where they were created and brought to life during artistic performances. The musical space penetrates the metropolitan space and the historical space of the region. In this way, the folk musical motif combines different worlds and specific places, unites individual people, creators and performers, and shows various kinds of encounter. The link between the persons mentioned in the article is inscribed in a specific place, and within the framework of this experience it allows to give symbolic features to one’s own space, to make it a place. The text is largely based on the personal experience of the author as a singer and an artist.
