There is a bidirectional relation between the rhythms of cities and its dwellers. This relation is more visible in chaotic cities like Istanbul. Istanbul has its own addictive and chaotic vibe. As a result of its geographical, social, cultural and religious properties, Istanbul has a unique soundscape. If you look at the different parts of the city, you would see that even if some elements are more dominant than the others, they are indistinguishable, which is also reflected to the recordings. The recordings are classified into three different groups (bazaar, traffic and music), and assigned to different chairs. The recordings are manipulated by the rhythms of individual users, which is their heart rate.
