Composer FAIL #97

Here is another one.



Are you guys saying you don’t want a twenty-four hour sound installation that stretches sounds and music from Final Fantasy? Here was my proposal.


“PC Bang 24/7” is inspired by the PC Bang centers (literally translated from the Korean “PC room”) where gamers can play multiplayer computer games for an hourly fee, and the addiction sometimes associated with cyberspace gaming.


This sound installation will take gaming sounds from the original Final Fantasy game series and stretch the original 8-bit audio soundtrack over a twenty-four hour period. This installation would be continually played twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week over miniature speakers in a room or art space; this twenty-four hour period represents the gaming addiction that some young men suffer via cyberspace.


I have to admit, I just edited said proposal and cleaned it up a tiny bit. Note to self: do not hastily apply for a grant proposal and submit it online at an airport.
