What are you doing Friday night? If you’re in DC, why not check out an innovative, locally-grown multimedia project andsupport the Future of Music Coalition while you’re at it?
This Friday at 9pm, local folk-rock quintet the Dreamscapes Project will play a benefit concert for the FMC. The event marks “Day 6” of the group’s yearlong experiment in multimedia collaboration known as the Twelve Days Project.
Launched in January, the Twelve Days Project brings together DC-area musicians, artists, filmmakers and media outlets once a month for twelve months to introduce their work to new audiences and benefit a local cause.
The “charity of the month” for June? Us! That’s right — honor of FMC’s 10th anniversary, the Dreamscapes Project’s Friday gig will benefit FMC. It’s always really moving when we’re supported by musicians.
Enterprising musicians, take note: the Twelve Days Project is also a clever roll-out scheme for the Dreamscapes Project’s new album, to be released next year on Figmental Records. Each monthly collaboration centers around a new track from the album, which is released as a free download (for twelve days only!) via a local publication. The track is then remixed or “re-imagined” by local musicians, artists, writers and filmmakers. You can check out examples from months past on the Twelve Days Project website [http://www.twelvedaysproject.org/home/].
