Submit Audio to add to the MIXT Soundscape!

The Why Collective is inviting anyone to be a part of the experimental soundscape that is being built for our "Living Gallery" on February 2-4, 2023. It can be as simple as a voice memo of birds chirping in your backyard, to something you create in a music studio that was inspired by natural sounds and imagery! Email with questions, or to submit your sound. Accepted file types: .mp3, .wav, .aiff, .ogg 

Call The Hotline!

Being an artist is just a phone call away! Our resident audio wizard, Julian WIld, is building a 9-hour experimental soundscape, and needs your help! 


We’re collecting original audio captures; between 3 and 33 minutes long. They can be taken with a phone, field recorder, or even made in a studio. Your work may be FEATURED in a living art gallery in downtown Manhattan!

Call the number below, submit your first name, and follow the prompts!
