Fortuna combines different genres using any and all means available. While he favours some over others, he refuses to limit himself to only one musical genre. He is the founder and leader of some of the top Polish bands in improvised music, such as Maciej Fortuna Trio (Solar Ring, Sahjia, At Home, Jazz), the critically acclaimed Maciej Fortuna Quartet and the Fortuna/Dys duo that produced two albums: Tropy (FM, 2013) and Maciejewski Variations (DUX, 2014). He performs music combining jazz with electronics, both solo and in collaboration with An On Bast (the duo’s albums include 1, Live, and Electronic transcriptions of film music by Krzysztof Penderecki). His recent project inspired by Kolberg’s works on Slavic folklore has been extremely successful in Poland (Kolberg Fortuny, later Maciej Fortuna Słowiański). He performed at various international music festivals such as Jarasum International Jazz Festival, Heineken Jazzaldia San Sebastián Jazz Festival, and Fringe Festival.
Fortuna’s work meets with critical acclaim both in Poland and internationally.
