The Livestream: A Living Album
We started the weekly livestream as a substitute for our COVID-cancelled tours, but we've become enthralled by its potential as an artistic medium in its own right. This new medium allows for— and demands!— a higher degree of performance than either a live show or a recording studio, because it’s both at the same time. It has all the private intimacy of listening to an album closely by yourself, or of hearing a performer in tiny club with superb acoustics, yet it's also a communion with anyone in the world who wants to tune in. We’re calling it… a living album. We’ve spent the last 6 months retooling, learning, exploring and rehearsing for this new medium, and have had the pleasure of sharing the results with you every week— all thanks to the support of our members.
The visual aspect of the livestream is also allowing us to delve deeper into the cinematic and oneiric quality of the music. We’ve always seen music as well as heard it— sometimes these images can be translated into lyrics, but now we are projecting them as light, right onto the wall and on our skin as we perform. We haven’t scratched the surface of all the visual ideas we have for 2021, but in short we want the livestream to be an audio visual art experience evocative of dreams and movies. You can tune into our livestream here if you want to join us in the dream time. And if you find that’s something you want to put your name behind, you can become a member at an amount of your choosing. Plus we’ll get Gray May Day 1 in the mail to you ASAP.
