Fulton Read: Synchronize
Free, creative commons piano rock from Austin’s Fulton Read. But there’s more to today’s Daily Dose than just a title…
Austin’s Fulton Read are on a mission to promote the Creative Commons movement by offering all of their future music for free, a trend that’s becoming increasingly popular among independent artists. (applause!) In a cleverly conceived promotion, they’re releasing their newest EP “Synchronize” tomorrow, January 31st 2010.
From the band:
To help announce this new release, we’ve arranged a worldwide graffiti collaboration of artists tagging the word “synchronize” on the same day (Jan 31st) all around the world. We’re really stoked to have several artists from the US, UK, Canada, Russia, Germany, Indonesia, and the Netherlands involved with this project to help promote synchronicity throughout the world and take “Synchronize” into the age of converging multimedia.
But Fulton Read has a secondary mission as well, evident in the lyrics to the title track “Synchronize.” The song goes beyond our technological concept of syncing, and explores what would happen if we could sync our cultural values, spiritual and scientific, subjective and objective.
It’s deep and admirable stuff, so be sure to sync up at www.fultonread.com beginning January 31st and download the EP for free. Tag it on Twitter, and share the creative commons movement.
