SPONSOR: Levi’s® recently kicked off a new project to both explore and discover the source and inspiration of creative ambition across art forms.

Bringing this effort to life are the trio of celebrated, Mercury-prize nominated hip-hopper Ghostpoet, along with forward-looking electronic maestro Koreless and visual artist Alex Turvey. During this endeavour, fans have been asked to share what moves them artistically with the hashtags #makeourmark and #moves.


Meanwhile, Ghostpoet, Koreless, and Turvey have been hard at work on a singular piece of collaboration with each artist focusing on their core strength: Ghostpoet handles the words, Koreless has been composing music and Turvey has been crafting the visual representation. In the view below, the artists tell us about the piece they have been creating.

Our friends at Smirnoff have created new artistic project, Mindtunes, that involves groundbreaking methods of creating music through brainwaves.

Accomplished British electronic music producer DJ Fresh teamed up with three disabled musicians—Andy, Mark and Jo—who share Fresh’s passion for electronic music, but lack the ability to physically play the keys of a synthesizer, in order to create a new song based solely on the three men’s brainwaves. Dr. Julien Castet is the fellow who manages the technology, which utilizes Brain-Computer Interfaces that allows individuals to literally send commands to a computer via their brainwaves. It’s hugely powerful technology that opens up a world of creativity and digital productivity to people previously denied such means of expression.
