The Spoken Days Project

By Jerry King Musser

Jerry King Musser:

Twelve international artists were each invited to choose a month in 2007, and to record an audio file of themselves speaking all the days of that month, ie: Monday, January 1st, Tuesday, January 2nd, etc. Those audio files were forwarded to me where I added additional sounds or musical elements in response to what they had submitted. Each artist spoke their days in their native language. The result is a conceptual experiment to achieve a 'verbal' calendar. Each month's audio file (MP3) is available for online listening without charge or registration. A good quality computer sound system or headset is highly recommended. Future 'Spoken Days' years will feature speakers from various commonly-held occupations, beliefs or interests, ie: actors, politicians, blue collar workers, and so on. This project was not motivated by politics, religion, or financial goal. It was independently funded by time spent in the process and by the generosity of the various international participants.
