Before I write more (soon), let me express gratitude for visiting the website by sending those sound postcards taken in a mysterious city on the Equator.
I grew up listening to small format analogue records called pocztówki dźwiękowe – singles or extended play records with images imprinted in them – here’s my tribute to this ingenious (and slightly forgotten) invention.
Those tiny bits of footage, taken from my b-roll Singaporean archives, were used to promote an experiment we run this May with Jacek Mazurkiewicz during the one and only Copernicus Festival in Cracow.
We screened Artur Ekert: A Model Kit (the latest installment of the Pioneers series) with dialogue and ambient sounds tracks only – with Jacek creating unearthly music with his double bass and electronic machinery – live! Just like in the old days of silent cinema.
Since our little experiment went way better than we expected, we’ll be thinking of doing it again.
And, perhaps, even more than once.
This last one, above, we shot with Artur Ekert in Bali. The footage has been never used – awaits its moment.
