“Eleven Floors” – audio collage awarded in an open call of the Mazovia Institute of Culture and Radio Kapitał
My audio collage “Jedenaście pięter” [“Eleven Floors”] based on 7 field recordings made in a large-panel block of flats and its immediate vicinity using a microphone and geophone, was appreciated as one of three awarded works in an open call organized by the Mazovia Institute of Culture and Radio Kapitał.
The premiere of the awarded works on Radio Kapitał on December 16 at 1:00 p.m. Recording of the radio premiere is available below (in Polish):
According to the jury: “A journey into a world close but unknown. The combination of field recordings and geophone recordings resulted in a fascinating sound image of the block as a mysterious labyrinth that is in constant motion, the space of which is still not fully explored. Elevators, chutes and other places seem to have a life of their own, in addition, we are constantly communing with the sounds of other people, whose intimacy is present right next to us. The work was distinguished by a mature approach to the sound matter and unforced musicality emphasized by sounds arranged in a characteristic mantric rhythm.”
