Boston-based music artist Matt Pendergast passed along the above video, called The Creative Process, noting that it has something in common with ArtSake: an interest not just in new art but in the exciting and unpredictable process of making it. To which we say, “Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about.”
Matt explains his project: “Our concept was to use video to document each step towards achieving our creative goal: Record and mix a song all in one day.”
The video encapsulates that one day, offering a tour of the invigorating process of making new art. A group of like-minded Massachusetts music artists – Matt, Emily Goldstein, Eliot Hunt, Andrew Jones, Alex Prieto, Adam Samuels, and Jeff Yurek – came together to collaborate on the intense, one-day project. The artists further explain their impetus on the project’s Facebook page:
For many musicians in the industry, “working” does not always mean “creating” freely. As a group working on this project, we wanted to give ourselves complete creative license – away from the restrictions of scenes and industry.
Stay tuned, because according to Matt, other similar projects, possibly including other media, are to come. You can follow the project on Facebook.
