The Warsaw-based Adam Mickiewicz Institute has launched a competition for music compositions inspired by the work of Polish science-fiction writer, essayist and philosopher Stanisław Lem.

Next year will mark the centenary of Lem’s birth, and "The Science of Fiction” competition is part of a series of events scheduled in his honour.

Lem's works have been translated into 57 languages and sold more than 45 million copies worldwide.

The new Polish project has been organised together with the Klangforum Wien, an Austrian chamber orchestra that plays contemporary classical music.

Klaudiusz Madeja spoke to the Adam Mickiewicz Institute’s Katarzyna Mitrovič.
