6 INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS
A VISUAL SOUND EXPERIMENT
TO CREATE AN EP /ARTWORKS / FILM
BY RECYCLING WHAT SURROUNDS US EVERYDAY
Berlin summer 2017, British sound explorer Allan Dransfield connected with Japanese producer Daichi Furukawa aka. DJ GROUND at the Voodoohop music festival.
As part of Allan’s ‘lifekollektiv’ project, he is working with international artists and sharing visual and sonic footage that he has collected over a two-year world voyage with the aim of morphing them into new artistic works. Some kind of organic observational/social up-cycling of what surrounds us everyday. GROUND took on the challenge and two weeks later served up his offerings - two tracks layered with samples from Namibia, Ghana, Poland, England & Romania, twisted together into his rhythmic patterns of obscure extravaganza.
Allan's journey then took him through Sweden, where he connected with legendary experimental rock band GOAT. Several members of The Goat Collective came on board, working with the same set of samples and digesting two more exciting musical interpretations.
Italian composer Francesco Fantini was the next part of the collaborative puzzle, whom Allan connected with 10 years earlier in Turin Italy, bringing a classic background and synthesised blanket to our picnic.
From the visual side, Japanese graphic artist Mt.Chills and Polish film maker Pawel Madalinski will be toying with the way light enters your retina, using footage Allan took from the scenes of the recordings and mashing them into your colourful psyche.
So the plan is pretty simple - we are are taking all of these ideas and producing a double EP, with 3 exclusive album artwork prints, created by Mt.Chills. We will then produce music videos for each artist.
This whole project is a celebration of synchronicity, brought together through the ramblings of a British man who likes to record things, all to to produce something that you will never have seen or heard before - something universal, something that joins us all together.
SO YES - we need your support - though the crowdfunding campaign which we will launch later this summer.
In return you would be the first to receive the exclusive content we produce.
So yeah. Stay tuned. Stay wise. Peace in. & Peace out.
