Łukasz Targosz's film music makes such an impression that, according to some of the posts on online forums, some people first turn up for the soundtrack, while interest in the movie and show comes later. An important moment in the growing popularity of this artist's work was the performance of his Hollywood productions live at the Film Music Festival in Krakow in 2015.
Łukasz Targosz started as a session musician. The first composing success came after creating the soundtrack to the film "The Crown Witness". Today he is the author of about 40 soundtracks to various film genres, including TV series ("Listy do M."), animations and historical feature films ("Kamienie na szaniec"). In 2014, the RMF Classic station together with the listeners gave Łukasz Targosz the "MocArty" Award for Film Music of the Year written for the HBO series "Wataha".
Here is a excerpt from a review of the music for the film "Pakt": "Łukasz Targosz's music already draws attention to itself in the credits at the beginning of the film. The disturbing dark sound of the initial bars is strengthened by the choir, electronics and cellos (played by the phenomenal Tina Guo). Application of a simple melodic line and repetition of the phrase several times was enough in this short composition lasting only a minute, the grim nature of the story developing in six consecutive episodes.
