WHAT IF ARTISTS COMPOSED MUSIC FOR A BETTER WORLD?
c.sides asked ten diverse artists and bands to create exclusive new works, sharing one goal: to make a humble contribution toward making this world a better, more just and beautiful place simply by doing what they can do best: make art and create music, and to embark on a mission of re-exploring the notion of meaning and impact in and through music.
Artists had full freedom in their creative process. c.sides provided only general guidelines to participating artists regarding the project’s concept and an intended timeframe of ten to fifteen minutes for each piece, in order to allow the artists to develop an idea beyond the limitations of a ‘regular track.’ c.sides also encouraged artists to work with different musical means than they usually would.
“This compilation is an artistic experiment we have wanted to do for a very long time. It is a personal reaction to the overwhelming global and local injustices, catastrophes and troubles, and stems from a slightly naïve, yet sincere belief that art, in its essence, can be a political act and path to changing the world. The idea is self-critical and self-deprecating, yet genuine and heartfelt: to create something beautiful and thoughtful, to dedicate a bit of our creative time to pondering the world and our role in it.”
(Ronni Shendar & Till Rohmann, c.sides)
