JAM-D-JAM! is an interactive response to a contemporary dilemma shared by all Atlantans, rush hour congestion throughout the city. This radio based interactive entertainment intervention will invite participants to use these crawling and stalling moments to contribute to an ever-changing soundscape. Calling in from vehicles, commuters' unscripted words or noises of frustration, boredom, aggression, anxiety or happiness will be transformed into continual musical invention and looped back to the traffic, the public, the performers through their radios. EMCs will be working with a diverse set of Atlanta music makers and producers to collaborate in the live sampling of these highly improvisational recordings as the composed sound is transmitted back into cars during daily traffic jams. The JAM-D-JAM! team will be awarded $20,000, a two week Hambidge residency, and administration and production support.
