You may have heard about a "chorus of complaints" as a phrase in a magazine article, casual conversation, or as a bit of acerbic social commentary. Well, it is now a very real cultural phenomenon which is documented on this website. The idea behind the Complaints Choirs movement is that a group of people can get together to voice their complaints, and put them to song. They are creating a real choir of complaints, and the movement has become a worldwide success. On the homepage, visitors can use the "do-it" section to learn about how the process works, and they will find that it is relatively easy. The site also contains a "News" area, a bit of "History", and a number of video clips of these complaint choirs in action. The "Choir" area is perhaps the best place to look for authoritative information on past performances, and the "Files" area contains high-resolution photographs of the choirs doing what they do best. As a piece of irreverent social and collective gathering, these choirs may catch the interest of sociologists, musicologists, and scholars of public culture.
