Opening: October 2, 14:00

Creation of a new Urban Songline, a performance and possibly installation, in which artist translates architecture into music through site-specific sound-generation in a designated public space of Tbilisi, in order to make it audible as opposed to visible or inhabitable collaboration with local communities. This project allows local interest-community groups to create music from buildings, bridges, squares and other objects in public spaces. Through creating audible versions of the shared domain, these exercises discuss the way we co-own and can appropriate the public spaces we live and work in. Every project works with local audience groups, designers and artists to make the scripts / scenarios that translates the buildings and other objects in public spaces in sound that artist makes into music in a live performance. Music, as a result, will be given away to DJ's for free so these spaces can be further democratized through sampling. As the Urban Songlines translate public spaces around the world into music they form a rhythmical organism of connections, as system of networked experiences of listening to architecture in order to shift our perspectives about the use and participation in our cities
