About this project

In 2009 S. Husky Höskulds launched the online artist collective Groundlift.org.This has since become home to a large group of creative humans from all over the world.

Powered by the collective talents of GL.org, tHE gROUNDLIFT mODULAR oRCHESTRA is born.

This Kickstarter project is put together to fund the first in a series of GMO recordings. The concept is twofold and simple: Maximum freedom of expression / Minimum interference by brain. I.e. “Move fast and without reservations”.

Final delivery will be via Exclusive CD’s and Cassettes, only available through the Kickstarter Pledge program, and later via Groundlift.org, as digital downloads.

Songs will be created on the spot via cut and paste, as if mixing William Burroughs’ writing and Pierre Schaeffer’s Musique Concréte.

Recordings, live to 8 trk analog tape, will be transferred to a High Resolution digital work station for editing, mixing and mastering.

GMO Vol 1 will feature Danny Frankel (Lou Reed, John Cale, Laurie Anderson), Tim Young (David Sylvian, Wayne Horvitz) and R. Branden Harper (Stone Gossard, Bill Frisell).

Subsequent volumes will feature other artists from the GL.org roster, and beyond.
