January 1st is typically the day in the year where hundreds (if not thousands!) of ‘365 projects’ start up. Projects that have the number 365 in them and aim to post a new thing each and every day for a year. Sometimes it’s a photo, inspirational quote or maybe even a recipe!
Yesterday I was surfing the web (I haven’t used that phrase in years!) and came across some short URLs. Before I knew it I was doing my all to regular search for a cool short URL. I was trying to find words that ended with ‘es’. I came across ‘voic.es’, but of course that was taken. And somehow I came up with my own 365 project; 365Voices.
365Voices is pretty much what it says on the tin. Over 365 days I hope to post a new ‘voice’ each and every day. An audio recording of someone.
But what would this voice say? I decided it would be a 60 second audio piece where the person details their name, where they’re from and then they can say pretty much whatever they want! A funny story, an inspirational moment of their life, an observation they’ve made or simply just what they got up to/plan to do that day.
The plan is to start with people that I know (probably radio people first, as they love to talk!) and then spread it around. Anyone can submit their own voice and then I’ll schedule it to be posted in the future.
I’m collecting voices as of now with the first one being posted on Tuesday 1st January 2013.
Will I make it all the way through until 31st December 2013? I hope so! There are certainly plenty of opportunities to collect recordings at events like Cre8 Radio, Poacher 2013 and of course my workplace and university.
If you want to add your voice to the project, all the exact details are on the website at 365voic.es/add
