About Just Scream

← Home

Just Scream is a participatory sound art project created by Chris Gollmar.

I am an elementary school teacher by profession but have also been an artist and coder since I was a kid. Over the past several years, I’ve created a few participatory art projects that invite people to call a phone number and leave a voicemail for others to hear. In each project, the constraint was different – in Listening Point, I asked participants to narrate what they heard in their immediate environment; in NOISE, I instructed participants to speak for two minutes continuously; in Call-In Special, participants could record anything they wanted.

In September 2020, I decided to create a new piece in this format. It didn’t take long to settle on a theme and a name: Just Scream! I designed and coded this site, launching it just before Election Day in the U.S.
