This is a 22 hours non stop field recording of places and people in Tbilisi in Georgia. The recording has been made by 9 sound or visual artists based in Tbilisi. The first recording started at 7.00 in the morning in a local Samgori market. The last one finished at 5 in the morning the other day near the railway station. You will be able to listen to the outdoor environments of Tbilisi as well as very particular and intimate spaces of peoples houses.

All participants had about two hours to capture the mood and characteristics of the environment that they have chosen. The recorder has never been stopped, so all the transitions, when participants are passing the recorder to each other, their everyday talks and interactions with surroundings are hearable as well.

On the top of the whole recording, following the idea of patching we have placed several stereo sound recordings to create new dynamics and perception of the whole sound piece.

This field recording chain was created to make listeners feel more connected to the actual Tbilisi life and to let them experience the city from the perspective of a real insider.
