Sound Journal by Justin Hardison (MP3s)

The head of 12k records, Taylor Deupree, isn’t the only person this year running a series of found sounds (see 12k.com/onesoundeachday and disquiet.com). Justin Hardison (aka My Fun) has been publishing a “sound journal” on his blog, true to his interest in “finding beauty in the everyday sounds and the pleasure in slowness.”

Among the most recent is a recording of an apartment (MP3), which he did as part of a call-for-entries by sound-artist o.blaat (details at nmartproject.net — due date is tomorrow, April 3) and a tape made near Hawk Mountain, in the Appalachians of Pennsylvania (MP3).

Together, the tracks are study in contrast: inside versus outside, music in the background versus birdsong, human presence versus its (relative) absence, the presence of technology and its (again, relative) absence, and so on.
