The Stone group was formed in 2003. Its members are Michał Wróblewski, playing the violin, and Adam Wróblewski, playing the cello. The Stone is an aviant-garde group, whose compositions are based on trance music, and that it why the goal of the concerts is to create a suggestive trance similar to ritual music from various cultures (elements of Oriental music, psychedelic rock and free jazz). Trying to define their work, the group uses the term electrosonoromedium (musicians are the medium of the new electro-acoustic sound). A concert is divided into thematically interrelated sets, improvised based on the prepared form. In 2005, in Leipzig, a premiere of the spectacle “Mom, let me dance Mahler” by the “Cinema” Theater, with music of the group, took place.
