This album series focuses on an individual's genius loci or the 'spirit of a place'. Each album is a personal document of the recordists (re)discovery of their 'city' through sound. The 60 minutes of recordings are taken from the recordist's own personal surroundings and include photos and text to describe the significance of these sounds to their own lives. The result is a document that reveals the deepest character of a place through a native resident's own experience so that (locals) and non-locals, as well as the recordist, can (re)connect with the city and (re)discover the beauty of their place.

This is an open project and anyone can participate. Contact us for more information on how to get involved.
