anthem archive

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....


AMERICAN STANDARD 2003

American Standard- Album Cover

For seven days and seven nights on 42nd street and Times Square we opened the door to any public participants ,,,from random strollers to all-star ringers this ANTHEM album is the elixir of legends. Sonic bridges were formed, that to this day remain intact, continuing to transit ideas from individual to individual. ANTHEM is a group rite of passage... as with all theatre, we enter as strangers, one by one, and depart as a group, all at once. To record the sounds of the space where this sub-culture is formed...this is ANTHEM.
