What if you were given a prolific ability to create songs but you realize that with the way things currently are in the system that you work with, that you will inevitably die before finishing what you hear?
I am working on recording 200+ works in this lifetime and I am caught in a dilemma.
This song was created alongside a video that took 2 years to make.
Beginning on December 31st 2012 I shaved my head and beard and compiled video footage of 200 days of singing the same song everyday while aging. It is a video signifying how fast time passes here on earth and how unaware we are of how we as a human species are treating our bodies. The video also shows the underrated value of 200 streams to get $1 on Spotify and even less on YouTube (around $.35)
Consider watching the video on YouTube and becoming a Patron of Greater art.
Or try the Spotify Challenge of Listening to the song 200 times:
2:35 x 200 = 8.61 hours
*Download this track and get the very first unedited Sound Dream song data log of when I first recorded the idea on February 8th, 2012 12:24AM.
*You'll also get extra unreleased album covers to choose from as well as additional video footage.
Thank you for your continued support while I try and gather revenue to complete the forthcoming album.
In honor of Daniel Ottney who recently passed away February 26th, 2015.
