Today, our friends at Stadiums & Shrines launched a collaborative audio/visual project called "Dreams," alongside a beautiful new page layout. In an effort to explore the relationship between audio and visual forms, S&S will have artist and close colleague Nathaniel Whitcomb submit a series of handmade collages aiming to inspire a piece of music, which would be posted on the site. Here are some words from S&S's Dave Sutton about the new project:
"Here we will explore places, or rather, ideas of places from a bygone era, by collaborating with musicians on pieces inspired by Nathaniel’s handmade collages, the very collages you drifted through above. We call them “Dreams” because they invoke places we’ll never step foot in; regions and countries that are defined in large part by the imagination far outside the confines of cultural history or accuracy, or even more so, reality. And we are encouraging this—artists involved are given a collage with the incentive to engage the surreal and report back with their sounds like two dreams in conversation. What results is as much theirs as it is ours.
True to form, there is no end in sight. “Dreams” will be ongoing and open, and we invite you to join us in any way, shape, or form."
