This is a modern, psychedelic work song starring hundreds of people playing hammers to create an experimental sound-scape art film.
Be Part of a Texas Legend.
On November 12, 2011 come be a part of Texas’ Longest Hammer Choir. This is a modern, psychedelic work song starring hundreds of people playing hammers to create a monumental sound-scape entitled 'Prelude To The Allnight Dustbowl'. It will be filmed from a denim-covered cart that holds a Rhodes keyboard playing the melody, as well as the film crew. It is a grand scale happening, art film, layman's musical choir, and all around good time.
We need funding to build out the film cart and rent or purchase all the film, sound and projection equipment. Also, pay the many people involved in the project, plus location costs and amenities for day of the shoot. And buy lots more hammers.
This event is an open-call to all who are able to hit hammers with someone else. Hundreds of people are re-choired to make this event unbelievable. Put on your best denim duds and come on out!
November 12, 2011, Austin Texas.
