Zakiewicz co-founded the ensemble named Fig. in 2009, with composer Alwynne Pritchard.

The artists collaborated on various projects including Engastromyths Quakers and Shamans, which was funded by Ny Musikk and performed at Landmark, Bergen, Norway.

Pulmonic ingressive speech describes the process of producing sounds, single words, or even entire phrases while breathing in.
