EMIGRANT

All music by Arszyn

All started with the idea of exploring the sonic layer of the immigrants' language.
The language is alive, but how to record it? It's hidden, intimate, or it's the language of profession.
I didn't spend much time in London. Some time ago I stayed there as long as half a year. Somewhere deep inside I was feeling the urge to visit the city once again. Some day I will go there again - that's for sure. The technology, the organization, the noise and the center of the modern world.
I was recording the soundscape of London, looking for hidden sounds and registering the overwhelming noise of a vibrant life in a big city. I was meeting Polish immigrants who lived there and I was recording their stories. I was asking them how they see the city and themselves, what their lives look like. I became a listener of the audiosphere and a sound explorer.
