Just before I started my undergrad at the University of Kansas, Scott Watson, the tuba prof there, had recently finished a solo tour of Poland with Piernik. Piernik is a very unusual musician and is most certainly avante guarde. Scott has this very very funny video of he and Piernik playing some duet which involved various odd effects and vocalizations. This video was broadcast, I believe live, throughout Poland on television. It, at times, reminded me of the old Gong Show, but it was supposed to be serious, at least to Piernik. Scott Watson respected Piernik's artistic experiments and gave the performance his all. From what I saw, it must have been hard to keep a straight face at times.
