How to Listen to Machines
Exploring the music of machine sounds
How to Listen to Machines is an interactive composition project that makes music out of machine sounds recorded and submitted by listeners around the globe. Designed to help us hear 'noise pollution' with new ears, this project reconstructs our everyday electric soundscape melodically, illuminating the richness of sounds we tune out.
The project will culminate in a full-length album that weaves melodies through the powerful rhythms and harmonies of machinery. (To hear the musical possibilities of machine sounds, stream the sampler EP.)
I invite you to collaborate with me on this project. Using your phone, simply record the sounds of machines you use or encounter in daily life, and share them with me for inclusion on the album.
