Walking piece details

Unseen is an immersive soundwalk from Culture.pl which reimagines places which have been lost on the map of Warsaw.

Each episode of Unseen tells a story about a place, first through introducing the space to the listener with a guide saying where to stand and what to look out for. Initially, listeners hear a binaural soundscape of what the actual location sounds like now, offering a contemporary acoustic map of the area.

After positioning yourself, let the narrative take you back in time, recalling hidden stories and unearthing lost sounds from addresses wiped off the map of Warsaw. Unseen also features additional archival sounds from the Spoken History Archives at Warsaw’s History Meeting House and from the Polish National Digital Archives.

Unseen is available as a downloadable podcast, although it is best experienced through the Echoes geolocative storytelling app available for iOS and Android. After loading the app, search for soundwalks in Warsaw and you’ll find Unseen.
