At Eyebeam in NYC Brian House has an interesting piece called Quotidian Record:
Quotidian Record is a limited edition LP that features a continuous year of my location-tracking data. Each place I visited, from home to work, from a friend’s apartment to a foreign city, is mapped to a harmonic relationship. 1 day is 1 rotation … 365 days is ~11 minutes.
As the record turns, the markings on the platter indicate the rotational cycle through 24 hours and the key changes that occur when I travel to cities in which I do not live. The sound suggests that our habitual patterns have inherent musical qualities, and that daily rhythms might form an emergent portrait of an individual.
Edition of ten. Please email me to discuss purchasing a record.
More and better documentation coming…
