The project is based on tighter audio connections between several artists living in different places (Georgia, Iceland). Being inspired by the whispering game Telephone, we are creating a chain of author’s audio-works, which responds to each other. We have selected 9 young artists from both countries, who are interested in radio art or sound art. The first artist from the chain produced a sound work that will be shared with the second artist from another country. The following produced

work will be like a response to the work and will be shared with the third artist from the chain etc. The artists are having a week to produce the responsive content / audio gesture. The works are part of a weekly program of Community Radio Tbilisi and Seyðisfjörður Community Radio. The aim of the project was to connect the individual artists through the radio works, shift the passivity of the listeners to more active roles, create and interesting radio content based on experimental approach and support exchange and collaboration between artists and radio stations.
