Instrumentals, Volume I: HOOK by Kirk Pearson
Hello, I'm Kirk Pearson. For a living, I travel the world in order to make things. This album is is one of those things.
Three years ago I founded BIT, an ever-changing global collective of musicians, programmers, and composers. The music of BIT as as eclectic as its membership, with over one hundred collaborators in six continents. The first time many of the musicians meet is on record, an exchange of melodies, ideas, and personalities.
HOOK is BIT's first instrumental album, intended for creative people to use in creative projects. It's our attempt to expand our creative horizons, and bring BIT to media other than pure audio.
For those of you that collect artistic mission statements, here's ours: "Think critically, create, explore."
