Helsinki Complaint Choir

Posted at 4:05 PM on November 11, 2006 by John Birge

An artist created this "complaint choir" project, in which the public was invited to paticipate in a workshop to have their complaints heard and made into a song. This is what they came up with in Helsinki.

Be sure to listen long enough (about 3 minutes into it) to hear the choir do the Nokia ringtone. Art imitates Life.

Complain complain complain!! ;-) jb
