On Sunday, August 20, at 2 pm, I will lead a sound walk as part of the Jewish Culture Festival in Grodzisk Mazowiecki.
Meeting place: Monument to the Railwaymen at the Railway Station, 1 Maja 4 Street
Registration is required for the event: email@example.com. The number of places is limited
A few practical tips: if you want to take recording equipment with you (or even use your phone, because in many cases you can also make interesting recordings with it), you can do it, but there will be absolutely no need to record anything during the walk. We will listen to contemporary Grodzisk and, at the same time, we attempt to consider its soundscape in the interwar period, which was shaped also by the Jews of Grodzisk. We are definitely going to walk a bit, so, considering the weather, don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes and have something to drink with you.

Resonance / תהודה / Rezonans is a live project which, apart from ambient and drone textures, uses found sounds sampled from old tapes containing fragments of music and spoken word related to the broadly understood Hebrew-language culture. I will play the project live on November 26 this year at 6.00 pm at the Museum of Mazovian Jews as part of the “Elektronika po żydowsku” event.
I would like to thank Kuba Sawicki aka Vidno for inviting me to participate in the event. See you there!

“It is our response to aggression with which we do not agree.
It’s our protest against the animalistic urges, for which there is neither place nor consent in the 21st century.”
Growing up in a city, of which the river is an inseparable part, it is hard to imagine functioning in a place where there is no such river – no banks, bridges, or the presence of aquatic birds… The Vistula used to have great importance …
