Polish Journal

I started to record observations, thoughts, descriptions directly on tape. I use a Sony Walkman of very modest quality, that still is able to capture sounds of a more delicate nature as passing cars or screaming children produce.

I recorded the first tape in Wroclaw, in April 2017. I describe the neighborhood where I stayed with its prison and school with bullet holes, walk the old streets and reflect on the pre-war nature of it, when the city was German and called Breslau.

I watch the neighbours in the courtyard, the destruction of a cupboard, but poets reading their poems in an anarchist bar, or an avant-rock combo playing were also captured.

Radio On will broadcast the one hour journal.

 

Polish Journal might be released as a limited edition of twelve cassettes .

The second tape of the Polish Journal is well on its way.
