Are Online Galleries A Better Home For Crowdsourced Digital Art?
Rajeev Basu's EEP EEP EEP EP, a crowd-sourced musical experience, comes to Fach & Asendorf, an online exhibition space.
Rajeev Basu is an English artist currently residing in Boulder, Colorado where he works at a work as a creative at Crispin Porter + Bogusky. PSFK covered his EEP EEP EEP EP project last year, where he and his community created audio tracks that convert noisy alarm sounds into a harmonious listening experience. In his artist statement, he asserts that:
These days, most alarms are just false alarms. They’re everywhere. They go off all the time. And they’re often left unattended. (We’ve all had that car alarm outside, that just won’t stop.) Alarms are a nuisance. This is an experiment to see if we can turn that on its head. Can we turn alarm sounds into music that people will actually like listening to?
