like all significant ideas throughout history, this started as a joke on twitter.
we kicked it around a bit, bouncing fake remix ideas off each other. then a bunch of us realized that we actually wanted to hear this imaginary album, and decided to make it happen.
the concept is simple: drone versions of top 40 pop songs. covers, remixes, interpretations. 'drone' is used liberally; it was up to each artist to determine what the word meant to them.
this was conceived and organized almost entirely via twitter, through a series of @ messages, DMs and retweets. we ended up with everything from ethereal bliss to howling noise, which is exactly as things should be.
the artwork was done by jennifer krause - hand-painted with a 3d effect. it works with anaglyph 3d glasses. the artist will send you glasses for $1, customized for $5. email schooloftsunami [at] gmail if you'd like a pair. silk-screened posters may be a thing in the future, if there's enough interest.
this is a free compilation. donate if you feel especially inclined, but don't worry. enjoy!
