Commemorating this year’s anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, Culture.pl is releasing a series of 10 immersive soundwalks, in both English and Polish, covering this period’s most significant events.
The series is the second season of Culture.pl’s Unseen Soundwalks, a geolocative show about the history of invisible places on the map of the Polish capital. After the first season’s roam through Defilad Square in the heart of the city, the time has come to present the most important stories from occupied wartime Warsaw. This second season has been created in partnership with the award-winning Warsaw Rising Museum.
As of July 21st, Unseen Soundwalks: Warsaw Rising ‘44 will be available as a podcast on most popular audio platforms, but the full experience has been designed for the Echoes geolocative app, where all the episodes will be available to visitors as they walk around Warsaw itself. In this way, they get to hear the stories about this fierce battle against the Nazi German occupiers in the very same places where they happened.
The production will be supplemented by special films prepared by the Warsaw Rising Museum, using contemporary and archival photos, as well as the soundtrack from the film Warsaw Uprising.
