The adventure continues, we continue our exploration of stealing stuff via RENTAL YIELDS.
Following hot on the heels of VOLUME ONE, Front & Follow and the Gated Canal Community present your second helping of RENTAL YIELDS – a multi-release collaboration project raising money to tackle homelessness in Manchester.
Inspired (if that’s the right word – perhaps ‘motivated’…) by our current housing system, the project encourages artists to steal (or borrow, nicely) from another artist to create their own new track – in the process producing HIGH RENTAL YIELDS.
Over 100 artists are now involved (the spreadsheet is fun), each one tasked with creating a new track from the sounds created by someone else – we are then collating the tracks and releasing them over the course of the next year.
This is VOLUME TWO, featuring the likes of Graham Dunning, Grey Frequency, Kemper Norton, Hannya White, Pulselovers and 23 Hanging Trees.
All money raised will go to SPIN (Supporting People in Need), whose purpose is to feed, shelter, clothe and generally support the homeless and people in need of Greater Manchester.
“Darkness descends. Where there was a stillness, there is an electrical surge. The towers in space are alive with the expectations of the night. Hundreds of individuals performing hundreds of individual acts.
The silence will be coming soon. But for now the towers in space buzz with the need to engage. Not a personal interaction. But an engagement all the same. Digital messages criss-cross invisibly as connection is made. The individuals react and keep the communication alive. The towers in space are home to these messages. The towers in space are home to these messengers.”
