Isn't It?
- Andrzej Bieżan

On 15 October 1981, Andrzej Bieżan signed a contract with the Polish Radio Experimental Studio for the composition of a work lasting around fifteen minutes, to be submitted by 10 December of that year. The circumstances in which Poland found itself, echoes of which can be heard throughout the piece, significantly delayed the author’s work. The music opens with knocks on the shipyard gate: the composer recorded them personally in Gdańsk. Isn’t It? is the last work in Andrzej Bieżan’s output.
