What We’re Doing
Making a Record
The record will tell the stories of human beings from all walks of life through sounds that they create themselves. Sounds will be collected via online submissions and face-to-face interactions, reaching out to those who may not normally be heard. A heartbeat becomes a drum or a person’s story becomes the theme of a song as Daniel transforms the samples into his record. It will be up-tempo, a little electronic, a little acoustic, and completely unique.
Documenting the Journey
The documentary will not only capture the process of transforming the samples into the Sound of Us, it will also take a closer look at the people and the story behind their submitted sound. We’ll explore the connections between the sounds and find out if there are recurring themes. Experts in music and other fields will also provide insight about the project and the issues it explores.
