About this project

Our lives are collections of moments and experiences we share with those closest to us.  Each moment that stays with us; falling in love, breaking up, a death, or a birth are all strong cuts of our personal experience.  These moments are observed and experienced by those closest to us and create a broad tapestry of human experience.  This is the "Meat Mural".  

Some of the most profound extensions of the human experience can be found in all different types of art.  This project attempts to combine music and painting with relationship and community.  The artist draws from the deepest cuts of his emotional experience and combines it with various degrees of input from backers.  

The "Meat Mural" is best suited for a gateway such as Kickstarter due to its collaborative focus and nature.

This album will be distributed through digital download, USB card and various pieces of the "Meat Mural".  The album also encourages collaboration with the listener in both musical and artistic methods in the form of audio collaboration on the final recording and collaboration in oil painting mediums.  

Funds will support final recording costs, mixing, mastering, materials and distribution.

I plan on having regular updates released through my twitter (www.twitter.com/andysmithsmith) and through Facebook (www.facebook.com/brotherleather). Demos can be listened to on sound cloud at www.soundcloud.com/brotherleather.
