In the Field : Suwałki Region is a very sentimental project. I was born in Kalinowo, but I spent my childhood and youth in Suwałki. The project is based on a series of field recordings made in the Suwałki Region. Wandering through forests and fields and looking for the sound, I return home, I touch the past and explore my memory. I return to places I know and discover new ones.
All sounds recorded in Krzywe, Wigry, Sejny, Suwałki, Skajsgiry, Kiekskiejmy, Dowspuda, Rospuda-Młynisko, Jałowo-Kurianki, Płociczno and Gdańsk in 2013.
Part of the field recordings is presented in form of a collection of sound notes on the audio-blog:https://soundcloud.com/suwalszczyzna
Very special thanks to Monika Pasiecznik, Michal Libera, Krzysztof Miękus, Marek Gałązka, Szymon Bukowski, Thomas Wells and all my family.
Realized as part of the Minister of Culture and National Heritage scholarship.
