Beat Diary is a project of the Bernese drummer Julian Sartorius. Every day for a whole year he recorded both a beat and an image, no matter where he was or how he was feeling physically:
A Day—A Beat
Every day I will record one beat, no matter where I am, using the situation each day will bring. Rules: No loops, no effects. Just me, my surroundings, my drum kit and a field recorder allowing overdubs.
The resulting photo-musical diary combines sound and image in a unique manner. One day, one track, one picture. The borders between sound and music, music and art, art and life blur together.
Available as a paperback with a download code or as a limited set with paperback and 12 vinyl records.
