WHO I AM

Jakub Orzęcki

I am an acoustic ecologist and field recording artist living in the City of Wrocław. My mission is to point out the increasing noise pollution in acoustic sensitive areas and to archive changes in sonic environments. Over the past decade I have been exploring the quietest and the most remote wilderness and underground locations in Poland trying to capture their primal sound ambiences. I care just as much about the acoustic heritage of Polish folklore and traditions, which are fading into oblivion as globalization progresses. I’ve established the Polish Soundscapes initiative, within which I record and analyze the relationship between biophony, geophony and anthropophony of my homeland’s acoustic environment.
