We invite Seniors to participate in the series Closer to Art, held as part of the Spectrum of Light project. During the three-year programme, we will together examine the properties of each colour in the visible light spectrum. Each colour is characterised by a different frequency and energy, which we can experience through our presence in the interactive setting. We start with orange – the colour of relationships, creativity and expression!

The workshop will be devoted to everyday sounds of the closer and more distant surroundings (home, neighbourhood, street, city). Together with musicologist Dr Robert Losiak, we will look at contemporary sounds and talk about sounds from the past – those that we associate with Wrocław from 30 years ago or with the most creative period in our lives, i.e. childhood. We will reflect on the relationship between remembered sounds and places, colours, smells and tastes, and we will create a private library of the orange colour.

In the second part of the meeting, we will go on a sound walk in the vicinity of MWW, during which we will practice deep listening to the sounds of the city. Finally, in the café on the Museum terrace, we will listen to the sound panorama of the city over a cup of tea.

Robert Losiak is a musicologist, founder of the Soundscape Research Studio, author of scientific articles devoted to the subject of soundscape, with particular emphasis on researching the city soundscape. Co-editor of the collective work Audiosfera Miejska (2012) and the monograph Audiosfera Wrocławia (2014). Since 2004, he has been conducting classes in the field of soundscape. Head of the research project The Soundscape of Wrocław – Research on the Soundscape of a Central European City. He has also conducted comparative research on the soundscapes of Wrocław and Lviv as part of academic cooperation between both cities. Editor of the journal AUDIOSFERA.
