A new concept record label is launching TODAY featuring 20 handpicked artists releasing 20 albums every 20 days.
The first album release will be tonight at 20.20 (UK TIME) on 20th January 2020. A new release then follows every 20 days.
All 20 artists were given complete artistic freedom to create whatever sound / music they desired but were each given the same strict criteria;
The criteria is as such;
The Album must contain 20 tracks
Each track must be exactly 20 seonds long
The project will take 400 days to run in its entirety. The 20th and final album will be released on 5th February 2021.
The idea behind 20x20 Project came about by Neil Stringfellow, who explained the development of the project;
“About 3 or 4 years ago I started making short little bits of music and as a little challenge decided to make little tracks that were exactly 20 seconds long. After I while I thought it might be good to make 20 of then in total as a little stand alone mini album. After that I didn’t do anything with the tracks at all but from time to time thought about what I could do with them. At the start of 2019 I thought I should release them in the year 2020. A friend suggested (as a joke I think) I should try and make 20 such albums in this manner but almost at once the idea occured to me to get 20 artists to contribute - each asked to follow the same strict criteria and the 20x20 idea was born”.
Artists so far confirmed include;
Guy Birkin, Belly Full of Stars, tay_ploops (aka Jessica Gabriel), Minimal Drone Girl, Danial Diaz, Martin Hoogeboom, Ikjoyce… More to be announced in the coming weeks.
