Views of notable sights across Georgia and rave music are coming together in video productions of a new project by two electronic music enthusiasts from the country, with prospective visitors invited to enjoy the sounds while taking in the views remotely.

With GR Music, an initiative by local ravers Giorgi Dekanoidze and Tamaz Orashvili, video recordings of select sites - via both on-the-ground shots and drone footage - are brought together with live gigs of contemporary Georgian artists.

The two founders of the project, who also launched the regional Georgian Rave festival last year, conceived the move with an aim of introducing both artists of the local scene and cultural monuments of the country to a wider audience.


Setting up high-definition cameras at locations ranging from the Uplistsikhe rock-hewn cave complex in central Georgia to hilltop views of capital city Tbilisi from its iconic television tower, they have shared resulting videos on social media.

Speaking to Tormeti magazine about their initiative, the two authors of the idea said they hoped the productions would help prospective travellers find their spots of interest in Georgia.

Dekanoidze and Orashvili also said they had plans for organising live festival performances next to cultural monument sites across Georgia.

Videos produced through the project can be found on the official YouTube channel of GR Music.
