The ANTHEM Archive consists of recordings gleaned from forty-two interactive sound-art events spanning over a decade.  An ANTHEM is an open action jam session of improvised sonic conversations and universal expression.  All are welcome to bring found objects or homemade instruments to activated spaces for free form audio participation without preconceptions as a release from rhythmical inhibitions. Everyone has an ANTHEM inside....


WORLD OF GOOD 2004

WORLD OF GOOD- Album Cover

ANTHEM is parallel to the traditional musical paradigm experience ...there is no shaman for us to vicariously experience this ritual. There is no stage, no separation...the sounds interact with no preconceptions as all elements of song structure are the improvised outpouring of  the individuals who by chance or by desire are contributing to the recording. A captured collective signature of the ineffable. Music is all powerful. Music heals. Music brings us together. ANTHEM is a voyage to experience the power of music as unfiltered sound, beyond noise and harmony there is the rhythm of life, the realities of patterns and its simultaneous chaos...all of IT! is poured into the cauldron, we invite you to turn the cauldron upside down and find the ANTHEM inside you.
