Help Futurist create an interactive art installation and release event to unveil our first full-length studio album, War Is Yesterday!
Bleeding Hearts is a multimedia, interactive art installation and interdisciplinary album release event conceived by Futurist. On June 30th, 2011, we will team up with some of New York City's most innovative young artists to present both an interactive walk-through album and interdisciplinary live performance of our first full-length studio album War is Yesterday.
- Album release website (coming soon): http://warisyesterday.com
- Event website: http://bleeding-hearts.net
- Venue: http://rebelnyc.com
The installation will offer guests a chance to explore each song on our album as an immersive experience. Each of the nine tracks will be assigned to one artist or team, who will then create a multi-sensory, interactive environment around that song within a partitioned space.
The night will culminate in the release and live performance of our album, War is Yesterday. The show will feature interdisciplinary guest performers, audience participation, crazy costumes, and spectacular visual effects.
In addition to being a fantastic occasion for collaboration and community-based arts, this event is going to be one huge party (bar, dancing, games, costumes, etc)! We will also be inviting several amazing bands to perform on the bill.
We are very excited about this event, and we need your help to make it happen! Please take a moment to browse our site and check out the music video we made for the album single Antihero. If you like what you see/hear and think to yourself "hmm, yes, I'd totally like to a part of something like this in the very near future," please consider supporting our project!
Your donation will help us out with the many costs associated with putting on an event of this size, including building sets, rigging lights, decorating, costuming, arts-and-crafting, and licensing. For those of you who don’t live in the area or cannot attend the event, funding is also needed to print and press quality albums!
As a final note, if you would like to be directly involved in the creation of this event, please get in touch. We’d be happy to have you on board!
Also, we’re still looking for several artists to help create the installation portion of this event. If you are anyone you know would be interested in building a room, please contact us directly:
