EEP EEP EEP EP is the concept album made entirely using alarms.
An independent art project by Rajeev Basu.

This is an experiment to explore if we can turn one of society's most despised sounds, the sound of alarms, into music that people might actually enjoy.

The project kicked off with the release of the EEP EEP EEP EP concept album.
This gave people a taster of what's possible.

We're now opening up the project to the world.

Can you turn alarms into a musical masterpiece?


Who's involved?
Rajeev Basu has collaborated with some world-class musicians. They include...

Malcolm Goldie (London)
Dominic Matar (NY)
Michael Manning (London)
David Kamp (Berlin)
GIRL UNIT (London)
and Blazing Lazer (LA)

And hopefully, you too.

The prizes
For every track submitted, Rajeev will create a 1/1 artwork inspired by it.

These art pieces will be created as submissions are received*.

The three most inventive alarm-tracks will be turned into sound-sculpture installations, which we aim to exhibit in 2012. The winners will also receive a range of Soundcloud prizes.

About the artist

His body of work includes a piece for the world famous V&A museum in London. Last year he launched the 'Impossible Lamp' sculpture. A lamp made of wax, that works without melting.

He has also worked as a creative at some of the world's top ad agencies. During that time he has received over 50 awards.
