Don’t know what to think if it’s stupid or genius… We think both because it is a bit unlistenable, but a great idea too. Producer Noah Wall made a album by recording strangers at a Guitar Center in Manhattan, NYC.
According to Noah, he created it by simply wandering the store in a pair of spy microphones that look like earbuds. “This place is mostly loners,” Wall wrote of the experience. “Trying out a guitar or amp or whatever, they probably didn’t come here to jam with others. But the din has an ensemble effect and the unintentional group is abiding some unspoken rules… On two different days, two different people on two different instruments in two different rooms play the same Jackson 5 song.”
The album is titled Live at the Guitar Center and is available for a listen and download down below.
