The Complaints Choir of Chicago
Today we in-officially announce the formation of the Chicago Complaints Choir. We are inviting all citizens of Chicago to complain about anything they want and to sing their complains out loud with fellow complainers. The complaints-song will be created together with all participants and the Chicago based musician Jeremy Jacobsen during a workshop consisting of 5 rehearsals between October 16 and November 2, 2007. The Grand Premier of the Complaints Choir of Chicago will be on November 3 at the MCA, as part of Humanities Festival. The project is produced by Smog Veil Records and MCA and kindly supported by the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Everybody is welcome to join the choir. The exact rehearsal schedule will be announced here at www.complaintschoir.org and at www.SmogVeil.com. No singing skills are required. Food served at each rehearsal. Each participant will receive a video documentation about the choir performance.
Those wanting to participate should send their complaints by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or post it on this site or send it to Smog Veil Records, 1658 N Milwaukee Ave 284, Chicago, IL 60647.
