"Collage + Remixes" STORE

Take part in a work of art!

"Collage + Remixes" is a COLLABORATIVE ARTWORK that I am making together with you and other fans!

It's a simple, creative playground that will help you:

  • Start thinking like an artist (if you don't already)
  • Feel embraced into something bigger than yourself
  • Change the way you see, listen, and think about the similarities and differences (be they vast or nuanced) between us all.

So let's get to it, shall we?

How does it work? Watch this brief intro video (same info follows in written-form). Then simply make a selection from the shop items!

Thomas will CUSTOM-COMPOSE up to 4 extra layers of music and sound to reflect your additions! This means, your collage will stand out even more, both visually and musically, from all the rest in the gallery. (To make sure the collaboration runs really smoothly, G.T. Thomas asks that you will engage with her in a Skype or phone call, or an email thread to get on the same page as you about your additions.)

• Have your collage displayed alongside its remix in the special online gallery, hosted right here at gtthomas.com. (You'll receive credit under the name of your choosing!)

Have a *SOUND* impact on the WHOLE PROJECT
  • Have a *SOUND* impact on the WHOLE PROJECT
In cart Not available Out of stock
$19.97

→ Only 6 total available! ←

FYI, this option is FANTASTIC FOR MUSICIANS and sound design folks.

Become immortalized in the AUDIO portion of this project!

G.T. Thomas will turn a sound submitted by YOU into one of the audio components that corresponds with one of the visual components in the kits!

HOW? Send G.T. Thomas a small audio clip of some audio. (It MUST be clear of any copyright issues, so the audio clip must be something you personally came up with, that has never been released elsewhere, and that you don't plan to release elsewhere. Specific instructions will be sent to you before you after your purchase comes through!)

It could be a melody you are humming... a field recording... a rhythmic sequence... bleep bloops from your modular synth... a clarinet squeal... a burp...

ANY SHORT SOUND (not longer than 30 seconds, and – heads up: if you are going to go for something harmonic or melodic, please shoot for the key of G major).

This will be used in tandem with the sounds provided by 5 other people purchasing this option. I will process the audio from them all into a single track – a single audio component that matches a single visual in this kit.

You will get credit on the gallery page of the site thanking you for your sound contribution.

IT STARTS GOOD:  

Anyone is welcome to download a FREE collage kit, containing visual components that G.T. Thomas has selected especially for this project (just click here)!  

Print 'em out (or open them in image editing software, whatever you prefer) and just try cutting and pasting some things. 

Make a collage! 

What happens if you try to use these components to express something unique about yourself? Or, something you find aesthetically appealing... or revolting? Either way it's great! Just go for it! 

AND THEN IT JUST GETS BETTER: 

After you've had a whirl at making a collage, this is where the real, collaborative fun really starts! 

Choose an option from the "Collage + Remixes" store here, in order to commission me to make a CUSTOM [audio!] remix that's especially designed to accompany your collage!

Much like how the collages are all built on the same visual components (everyone get the same starting materials), these remixes will all be made of the same audio components. So, I've actually composed –in advance– an audio component to go with each visual component. However you've composed your collage will then dictate how I make the remix.

So, every collage will have both visual and audio features in common, but everybody's work will still be totally unique!

Your collage will then be featured, alongside its tailor-made remix, in a special online gallery, hosted right here at gtthomas.com! 

So, if you step back from it and you look at all of the collages with their audio match in the gallery, you get this complete artwork. And everybody's unique personality and perspective will be represented in a way that is individual, as well as overarching – in the form of this overall piece of art... which is the gallery, more or less!

So, let's get moving! Just click any option in the store to get more details about what the purchase gets you. 

Within 2 business days of placing your order, I will reach out to you via email, so I can answer any questions and offer support for your purchase. And, as this is a collaborative process, it's good that we have that open channel. At that time, I'll also tell you how you can transfer your collage to me so that I can compose the remix and get all of tat online from my side.

So expect to hear from me, but if you don't within that timeframe, please send me an email to make sure your order went through!

Before I let you go, I want to say there are a lot of legitimate reasons you might decide not to participate in this project. But if there's one reason I want to really encourage you NOT to let stop you, it would be the feeling that you don't think of yourself as "enough of an artist" to be involved in this.

You are welcome here, JUST AS YOU ARE, with as little or much as experience in visual art or collage as you may or may not have. Taking a leap to see what thoughts this process leads you toward is your first act as an artist. So...

Let's do it!

Do note that if you make a purchase, you agree to the terms and conditions, which can be found here.

Hero for a day

SPONSOR 1 DAY OF MY ARTIST RESIDENCY

And get a hand-written letter from me, to you, IN THE actual factual POSTbox

I've been awarded an artist residency in historical music town, WOODSTOCK, New York! I'll be there for 4 weeks spanning Aug-Sep 2018. 

If you'd like to sponsor one day of this exciting adventure, I will write you a letter from Woodstock. You'll get a glimpse into my day's events, news, and experiences, as I'm stationed there in the woods (just FYI: I'm told I WILL see a bear. If I see it on the day it's YOUR turn for a letter, you can BET YOUR SOCKS I will write to you about this!!)

Where did this number come from?  I simply took the overall expenses I'm still in need of (as of  May 25th, 2018), divided it by the 28 days of my residency, and this was the number I arrived at. 

I look forward to bringing you into my residency experience by keeping you in mind for a day and sending you a handwritten note from the woods... 

... Of course if  you'd like to contribute to my expenses without seeking that exchange of a letter for your day of sponsorship, you can go straight for the "kissing booth" option, from which you can make a contribution to my trip of any size you like. It's all explained behind the kissy face.  

 THANK YOU SO MUCH!

If you'd like to provide a financial contribution toward my residency in Woodstock, this option allows you to do so in any amount.

It's called the "Kissing Booth" because I will literally blow you a kiss the very second I'm notified that your contribution came in.

(You'll have to trust me on this one, but my hand to the skies, it will happen ;))
