Prelude 01 :: Expanding Perspective

 

Expanding Perspective is the theme for the first Pretty Lights Live Episodic Festival.
This is the “prelude”. Talk about it:)

The actual EPISODE VIDEO will be posted this next week.

I want you to create & post videos and photos and music that you make while thinking about EXPANDING PERSPECTIVE. Use hashtag ‪#‎PLish‬

SEE DETAILS BELOW:::

The 5 PLL Episodic Festival will tell a story about an experiment while also being an experiment in telling a story.

It goes like this->
Just before each episode the PL film crew and myself will post a short prelude video that visually explores an idea that will be a theme for the episode

AND

Over the span of each two night concert, the PLLive band will record select live cuts onto a single cassette tape and then make it available after the show

AND

I want people to make & post art about the theme.
Chop up the music from the cassette and make music.
Take photos & make videos at the PLL concerts or anywhere that you might be.

Last year, Telluride CO hosted a Pretty Lights 2 night concert that was the first of its kind. That weekend changed my life. Surrounded by an energetic natural environment with so many people on the same positive frequency and playing live music with the dopest musicians I’ve ever heard… The experience was spiritual.

I have witnessed an incredible story unfold as I’ve watched fans of PL music come together and connect with each other at concerts and online and truly affect and change each other’s lives for the better. It has helped me really recognize the importance of shared experience and even more so, the potential.

The idea behind the Episodic Festival came from thinking about this experience like a story unfolding and how this story might continue.

I’ve had a vision like a story in my head for too long that I haven’t really known how to tell.
It’s almost like the telling and the discovery of the story which must overlap and intertwine and feed back into each other for the plot to twist and be twisted into existence.

And that’s an experience I know I want to share with all of you.
