Electronic artist A.M. (who also goes by the name Andrew Moore in his other life as an elementary school teacher) is making an open call for participants in his latest project—what he’s calling a “sonic portrait” of the lives of ordinary people on a particular day: Friday, May 23rd, 2008.
Torontoist was impressed by A.M.’s 2006 album, Underground, which sampled the many sounds of the TTC, including the door chimes and the cacophony of the train screeching into the station. For his fourth album, dubbed Let’s Spend the Day Together, he’s planning something more ambitious. He’s calling for people around the world to make an audio recording of some aspect of their lives on May 23—be it walking the dog, sitting in rush hour traffic, or whatever. Moore will use his favourite clips to build a song based on that person’s day.
More information on the project is available on A.M.’s website.
