Other workEdit

Along with John Avila, he produced Dexter's Laboratory: The New Wave Experiment (1997), a soundtrack album with music inspired by Dexter's Laboratory. Bartek originally intended to be the show's main composer, but his demo was rejected by creator Genndy Tartakovsky, who despite being a Oingo Boingo fan, had concerns about his cartoon being pushed aside he was doing orchestral work with Danny Elfman.
