Monome Community Releases Earthquake Disaster Emergency Album
The Monome Community, an eclectic ensemble collective of electronic artists, have come together once more, in response to Tohoku Chiho Taiheiyo-oki Jishin, the Tohoku region Pacific Ocean offshore earthquake which rocked Honshu Island Japan only days ago. Using sampled, synthesized representations of seismic event data collected from the devastating earthquakes, participants created a wide variety of remixes and compositions as a cathartic response to the sheer power of the earth.
This compilation of original music and sound has been generated in the days immediately following the staggering 9.0 earthquake which ravaged Japan, and is released in support of the ongoing rescue and reconstruction efforts ongoing today. Regardless of whether you enjoy or appreciate this music, please make a donation to an aid organization responding on the ground to this disaster.
"We make music and raise awareness in the face of this tragedy because we are musicians and human beings, and in the face of such power, there is nothing that can be done from afar than to stand up and say 'we are aware of your plight, we are with you in spirit, and you are not forgotten'." - leif, the lokey baselayer
You can download the album for free, and are asked to donate to one of the listed charities.
It's available now on Bandcamp.
