I recently made this little “musician map” as I like to call it. It includes 21 musicians, mostly within the indie music scene (and more specifically, a lot of musicians based out of Brooklyn) who have collaborated, played with, or have some sort of connection with one another. There are SO many other artists that could be included in this, but I chose the ones that have a lot of connections, ones that I like a lot, or people I have seen play live.
I found these connections through wikipedia, interviews, live performances, videos, artist bios, album liner notes, and a few other random places.
The idea for the design/presentation came from my brother’s art piece that can be found here. Check out his other art if you can, his work is technology/social media focused…and pretty cool. And, of course, mine is not as pretty…all hand drawn and crooked. If I ever make another one of these, it will probably be done on the computer.
Honorable mentions/people who almost got included are: Son Lux, Yuuki Matthews, Fleet Foxes band members, Nico Muhly, and a few others.
this is my favorite video and I FINALLY FOUND IT AGAIN
I’d never heard Rosie Thomas’ speaking voice until watching this video tonight, but it’s surprising to hear her talk in the beginning then to hear her incredible voice once she begins to sing. And also, if you know or listen to these musicians at all, it’s pretty fun to see them interact and play together.
