This Friday is the last day for artists to submit their sounds to the DJ battle record you’ve all been waiting for: The Sound of Art.
This record, which is being produced by Paddy Johnson of Art Fag City, compiles and organizes art sounds by gallery location — Manhattan (side A) and Brooklyn (side B) — for one giant DJ face off this November!
“This is a unique opportunity for artists to present their work inside and outside of the art world,” Johnson says. “The record itself is simply a tool to create other beats and other music. We don’t know what the end product will be musically but we’re excited by all the possibilities. This is going to be an epic battle, and the record is going to reflect the diversity of communities in the New York art world.”
Johnson says the Manhattan side of the record is pretty much filled up but Brooklyn needs a little more juice, particularly of the female variety, so the ladies of King County are very much encouraged to send your submissions ASAP.
What the hell is this record about? According to Art Fag City:
Stocked with diverse art sounds, such as art video sound clips and installation specific composed pieces, The Sound of Art will evoke memories of gallery and museum hopping in New York over the past five years.
Wowza, can’t wait.

Note, the sounds must be from a work that was exhibited in the past five years or is currently being shown in Manhattan or Brooklyn.
