Favourite Recorded Scream
I read about this a while ago and have finally got round to tracking down some information about it. This is from the website of the bloke who made it:
"Between October 2008 and March 2009, I visited every record store in Manhattan and asked the employees for their favorite scream from recorded music. Side one of this record is a compilation of the screams; one from each song, edited together and arranged in the order they were submitted. Side two follows the same order as side one, but has ten second spaces between each of the audio tracks." Includes 18 x 24" poster w/ map and record store information, address/hours/website/phone etc.
Pictured on this site is the cover of the record, the poster (both sides), and all 74 of the participant questionnaires.
LP. Edition of 500. Includes fold-out map."
Here's an extract:
