In 2000 Grabowski started taking private classes in classical composition with prof. Krzysztof Olczak, which he continued for the next 2 years.

Also in 2002 he released his first solo release "Diarakth" for a German Laub records.
The same year saw him leaving Poland and moving to Dublin, Ireland, where he now continues to work on his music. In 2004 he released his next release, "Glitch Letters" e.p. for his own small label Silence Is Not Empty. The release was marking a slight change in his sound, a departure from drones to a silent and microtonal music.
The release was followed with a short concert tour in Spain and Portugal plus few concerts in London and Ireland with a German band Troum. After returning from those Grabowski decided to concentrate on studio work and developing his musical language. "Glitch Letters" were followed by a series of recordings. One of the first results that got released was a 7" "Cirr's Songs" e.p.
