Our friends at Stillmotion just released a short documentary about our Side By Side collaboration project. From start to finish, this film documents the "experiment" we conducted: seeing what happens when you cram a group of talented musicians together into one room over the course of a few days.
In March 2013, we invited a diverse group of artists from our roster to take part in a spontaneous collaboration, challenging each band to cover the song of another. 12 bands, 4 days, and only 1 studio. A collection of songs came out the other side of this hazy and intense weekend bringing to light an amazing wide-ranging and cohesive compilation of compositions.
This striking film not only showcases our local and creative community,
but a moment in time in the spirit of collaboration. Music and any
other form of art can resonate as a deeply personal experience, when
that experience is shared with a myriad of personalities and
perspectives, the result is something beautiful, vibrant and resounding.
