Thank you for considering collaborating on this project. Old as New – Songs from the Imaginary Great American Songbook is a collection of ten original jazz compositions with themes that would benefit from the creative input of visual professionals. The idea is to create events around this album project that emphasize the music together with visual arts. Artists works will have attribution in all event settings. How that attribution is realized can change depending on the event environment (video projection, artist signature, placard, artist selfie, etc.) and of course, the artist’s preference.
You will find links to each of the ten songs, as well as the liner notes for each song, which lays out the story/theme of the composition.
Please determine which of the themes resonates with you – if you already have a work (or works) that fits with a theme, great. Don’t feel you have to create new material for this project, although you are welcome to do so if inspiration strikes.
