Polish Journal by Rinus Van Alebeek

Inspired by Adrian Shephard’s Tapes from Istanbul I decided to start recording my thoughts and observations as they came, when walking streets or looking at every day life situations.

This first episode of Polish Journal is recorded in Wroclaw in April 2017. Courtyards, prisons, decay, world war II, Breslau vs Wroclaw, second hand clothes are among the topics discussed and described. Chance recordings, live concerts, poets in an anarchist bar and fragments of private life complete the journal.

I used a Sony Cassette Walkman for the recordings. Your digitally refined ears might have some difficulties with the sound quality. Somewhere you can hear me say that Wroclaw is on the river Wisla. This is a mistake. It lies on the Odra.
