Album info

Photos shared with the popular software Instagram are usually square in format, not unlike the cover to a record album. The format leads inevitably to a question: if a given image were the cover to a record album, what would the album’s music sound like?
Instagr/am/bient is a response to that question. The project involves 25 musicians with ambient inclinations. Each of the musicians contributed an Instagram photo, and in turn each of the musicians recorded an original track in response to one of the photos contributed by another of the project’s participants. The tracks are sonic postcards. They are pieces of music whose relative brevity—all are between one and three minutes in length—is designed to correlate with the economical, ephemeral nature of an Instagram photo.

OO-Ray made the best music of this album. I've used it twice in my short movies (and quoted him). Thanx OO-Ray!

Hi all! I'm doing an experiment to understand the creative process better for writing music. No money involved, just for fun and understanding and sharing the learnings with folks. (As an FYI I'm an Innovation/Design Consultant by day) Originally I was going to do the study using the following mood board for musical inspiration. The link is here: http://?
