Project timeline: April 10th – April 30th 2022
Project: This project, “4 mão 2 canção [4 hand 2 song]”, will be carried out by me and @calebav and will take place through a video call and a face-to-face meeting every week during the last three weeks of the month.
Objective: The objective of this project is to record two songs composed from the scratch by the two musicians, with different musical backgrounds and trajectories. The two works will be available as NFTs at Nomade Label store, with 10% of the revenue going to the label To this end, me and Caleb will use different recording platforms (from audios from social networks to recordings in open source software, and more) and instruments as possibilities that expand the creative dialogue.
Rationale: At a time when face-to-face activities return transformed and in which the telematic presence is reaffirmed, the very process of composition and recording between two musicians who have never worked together could be understood as an artistic workshop in which two different artistic practices exchange knowledge and have the unexpected as the only horizon taken for granted. So, the possibility of other NFTs (and Antimétodo lessons, and so on…) arising from this experience is not excluded.
Context: With both musicians having an impactful presence on Web3, ironically the first time Caleb and I had a conversation was face-to-face at EAT, the inaugural event of Nomade Label DAO where we both presented our latest musical research. From there, we nurtured the idea of working together on compositions to release together as NFTs, something that resonates with the initial idea of Nomade Label as a record label, years ago. It would be an honor to help this DAO on one of its first forays in that direction.
