Sound design, Music and Multimedia Production for photographers Maria Morina, Olga Kravets and Oksana Yushko (Verso collective), for their project GROZNY 9 CITIES. First Prize Lens Culture Multimedia Award, 2011.
Grozny, the capital of war-torn Chechnya, is a crucible for the changing Сaucasus society that is trying to overcome a post-trauma
shock of two recent wars and find its own way of life in between traditional Сhechen values, Muslim traditions, and globalization, to
cope with rapidly changing role of women, increasing contrast between rich and poor and political games.
The project is inspired by a Thornton Wilder book, Theophilus North, and centers on the idea of nine cities being hidden in one, which gives us a concept to explore specific aspects of the aftermath of two Chechen wars considering them as ”cities” hidden within Grozny.
