Krzysztof Kilar on SoundBetter

Hi. I'm sound mixer based in Poland (ready to mix anywhere you want.) Please, check out my profile.

I work with major jazz, pop and rock artists in my country. I have worked in Old Theatre in Lublin which is one of the most prestigious cultural institutions in Poland where I had the honor to mix few concerts of Grammy Award-winning Włodek Pawlik.
Now I am live sound mixer(FOH) for Natalia Przybysz. She is incredible singer and last year Natalia won a remarkable two most important music awards in Poland - Fryderyki and her album Prąd is now platinum. Natalia performed on nearly all large music festivals in our country and recently we are getting ready for new very extensive concert tour.

I work also for band called Shy Albatross ( and Damian Syjonfam (
My duties include: touring coordination, technical consulting for one-off events etc. Furthermore as a FOH and monitor engineer I cooperate with polish audio companies.
I would be very happy if I could work with bands from all around the world.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

  19. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  20. A: Usually I talk to a producer of music and I try to reflect its expectations. My job is primarily to add extra punch and space to the music.

  21. Q: What's your typical work process?

  22. A: I always start by testing the sound system. I do measurements with Smaart7, listen to music, introduce correction. I am crazy about right audience coverage. When the PA is ready I load up the preset to the console or create a preset from scratch. If the scene does not have a technical team which is working on a daily basis, I check the settings microphones on the stage and start the sound check. If possible, the instruments are checked by technicians and musicians appear only at concert or at the end of rehearsal. When I work with the band on a permanent basis, I use the virtual soundcheck.

  23. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  24. A: I am a sound engineer. I am mixing live sound at concerts (FOH/MON).
