Good Morning to Honolulu….we’ve been waiting for you

Today is the 15th July 2014, and this is the day that Harkive will be collecting stories from music fans around the world.

The aim of the project is to capture for posterity a global snapshot of the way in which we interact with the sounds and technology of today, and get to the essence of what music means to us as all.

We hope that it’s a beautiful morning there in Hawaii. We’ve been waiting for you to join in with us.

One of the aims of Harkive has been to make contributing as easy as possible, which we hope we’ve achieved. For a little more detail on the different ways you can tell your story have a look at the How To Contribute page. Really, though, it’s very simple, and it breaks down like this:

- Just tell us the story of how, where and why you listen to music today.

- You can email your story to submit@harkive.org, or use the #harkive tag to post on social networks. You can also submit your story using the form on this site.

- If today is tricky for you, just make a few notes and send in your story at a later date. We’ll be accepting stories up until 22nd July, when the Harkive window closes.

- Write as much or as little as you like: Send one tweet, or a hundred; write a two-line snapshot, or a very long essay – it’s entirely up to you.

- You can also take photos, record some audio, or even make a video.

- Remember that there are no right or wrong ways to do it, just tell us your story!

- …and here are our 5 reasons why we think you should contribute.

If you’re still a little stuck as to how you might contribute we’ve posted a number of example contributions from musicians, journalists and fans. Take a scroll through the examples page to get an idea of how others have Harkived their listening.

Happy Harkiving!
