Side B 24:48



I asked a handful of people to record 2 minutes of whatever sounds were happening around them on 14th December 2016 at 18:20 (6:20 pm) their local time.

So what happens at 18:20 pm around the world? Lots of kitchen clatter and train commutes and people's pitter-patter. Dogs being doggie and strange noises coming over hifis.

I love the mundane sounds of daily life.

Why this date? (Because numbers make nice patterns)

In the US the date is written MONTH DAY YEAR so this date was 12/14/16. In military time 6 pm is 18:00 and 20 past 6 in the evening is 18:20. A two minute recording starting at 20 minutes past the house will end at 22 minutes past the house so.....12/14/16/18/20/22 = 2

24 people did recordings for this in total. 12 on Side A (24 minutes of sounds). 12 on Side B (24 minutes of sound). Equalling a total of 48 minutes of recordings.

Numbers are neat huh? Well, maybe not to you.
