“The city spoke for itself, and I would not have been able to record these people and their contributions anywhere else in the world. This is literally the sound of Terre Haute.”
(+_m), [Spectrum Magazine, Issue #18, 2012]

Produced entirely within the city of Terre Haute, Indiana, “2012:47807:” is the Midwestern offering of the ongoing “2012: Site-Specific” audio project.

Since beginning the work on this segment of the project in 2009, traveling record producer (+_m) has recorded many of the interesting characters who have helped to create his adventure in the city.

This audio collection features contributions from a few dozen individuals who live in, or were simply just passing through, Terre Haute. Some folks added chatter, some sang, and some made noise. All contributed to a unique lexicon of recordings that were then refined and lastly turned into audio tracks that are ready for public consumption.

Physical copies will be available for FREE at the release event in downtown Terre Haute on February 3rd, 2012. The album will also be available for FREE at

“We did it here, in Terre Haute.  I must mention that this was not my effort alone; everyone contributed in so many ways, everything from scheduling, recording, releasing, and promoting.  Individual talents are what made this project a completely original work. By letting anyone to participate, and by exclusively recording this project in Terre Haute, we have created an amazing audio product that is distinctly local, and could not have been created anywhere else. I want to note that each participant created their own part. There was no censorship in content or push for the perfect recording take, there was only their desire to express. There were no specifications in terms of what genres and musical styles could be used. Everything that came in was raw and unrehearsed, and then processed into the songs that populate the album.”

To date, the project has produced this double album “Serving the Community”, 3 remix kits, a video EP, 2 maxi-singles, numerous social events & performances, and a flattering amount of passive aggression.

“2012″ is the prefix, and “47807″ is the postal code for Terre Haute where (+_m) and friends currently hold a studio, hence the segment, or “band”, “2012:47807:“.  “2012” can either signify the year this project ends or can be an example of a number that cannot be written as a sum of 3 squares.

You can hear music from the album at the release event “Crow Magnon” on Friday, February 3rd, 2012; 10p.m. at Ole Simrell’s, 804 S. 7th Street in downtown Terre Haute.  The event features performances from The Nerve, The Toys Du Joir, Chris Foote, Rybot, Gigante, TxtBook, & Deek.

(+_m) is available for interviews.
