C40 – How to Forget, released by Tutore Burlato

​The sounds on this tape ​stress the importance of forgetting.
​I​ used many ​e​very day objects, simple objects,
to record ​the source material​ directly on magnetic tape.
​These were objects that we encounter…bricks, wood, stairs.
The objects I chose had an extra historic layer;
they were made and used before the war,
in a part of Poland that belonged to the German Reich.
I mixed these sounds with music and speech from found tapes.
Those were relics of a (Polish) past t​hat ceased to exist.

On side 2 I added an encounter with life – real and imagined-
in the former jewish neighbourhood Podgórze in Kraków.
Obviously also that era came to an end.

To remember everything in detail is impossible;
it would hurt too much and make life unbearable.
That is why we tell stories.
