Amorfurniture

First of all, we LOVE connecting with artists, designers, musicians, and innovators of all stripes. Our mission at (echo)witness is to appreciate those who are pushing new ideas and to further our understanding of the world by experiencing and building upon the works of our creative community.  We were recently contacted by a group of design students in Serbia, who are working on an experimental design for these sustainable seating areas. Dubbed Amorfurniture, the outside is meant to resemble a cube, while the inside contains an amorphous seating and lounge area. This furniture can be recycled and rebuilt to any specification at any time…definitely a cool idea.Spread the word. If you are an artist or creator who wants to be featured on the (echo)witness blog send us an email at connect@echowitness.com…Also follow us on Facebook and Twitter

The Birthday Party…An Interactive Adventure

Our good friend Tyler Gillett just directed and shot the new mini-movie from Chad Matt & Rob, called The Birthday Party.  As the viewer, you get to decide which actions Chad Matt & Rob will take at the end of each scene…leading them to the birthday party, or getting them in further trouble. This is a great concept and we expect a lot of entertainment to move in this direction in the future. Check out the rest of their films, here.  Tyler and Chad Matt & Rob have been garnering their fair share of attention lately, so be on the lookout for more goodies from this talented bunch…

The Hector Fund

Inspiration comes from many different sources, one we recently stumbled upon is The Hector Fund. We love what they do and we are proud to support these creators, who spend all their efforts on supporting creators and artists themselves…

When Jake Brennan (who has toured nationally & internationally with Cast Iron Hike, Jake Brennan & The Confidence Men, solo, and in his current band, Bodega Girls) and David Ginsburg (former music director /program director at WBOS-FM in Boston) would talk music and where the industry of music was headed, they concluded this: The sands in the music business are shifting, all of it, from the major labels self-inflicted implosion to the rise of social media and the corresponding democratization of the music business, in which anyone with a computer can create and upload music to the world. So, how do you get noticed? They saw many artists starving, working day jobs, creating whenever they can and fighting to get noticed.Jake came to David in Fall 2008 with the seeds of The Hector Fund idea already in development. David’s experience in radio & the music industry, Jake’s experiences as well as that of Hector Fund creative director (and Bodega Girls frontman) Evan Kenney, brought them together. Months of planning,  brainstorming and fine-tuning led to building the site.Word has spread entirely online; the Hector Fund is 100% bootstrapped, and thanks to the social web, virtually all of the marketing efforts are coming through the newest “standard marketing” channels: Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, some very supportive bloggers and other musicians, who seem to love the idea.There are other companies building similar models. What sets The Hector Fund apart is transparency – they are Artistfunding agents. Artists own their masters & publishing. Hector solely helps them connect with fans to raise money, develop unique, creative entitlements, assist with marketing, and build mobile fan clubs via a proprietary software platform that enables fans to opt-in and then connect via SMS text messages to get news, free downloads, and can purchase tickets and merch direct from their smartphones.

Aria Cavaliere, runs the Vintage Clothing Company: Parlour. You can find her at her so-called “pop up shop” at the TN STATE FAIRGROUNDS FLEA MARKET.

Media_httpechowitness_jqgyj

An early appreciation and love for fashion evolved when Aria discovered her first Vogue at the house of a childhood friend from Beirut, Lebanon. The elaborate and exquisite gowns and jewelry from those far-away lands influenced her and were a huge factor in her further developing fashion addiction. With a degree in Fashion design from the Chamberlayne School of Design in Massachusetts and years of experience as a Stylist in NYC she packed up her bags to return to Nashville, TN. Here, Aria Cavaliere created Parlour!! With an amazing talent to find the most fabulous vintage clothing around, she thrives on the thrill of seeing her customer get psyched on the pieces that she finds for them!
