Levi's® Plots a Journey to the Modern Frontier with Some of the UK's Best Artists

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.


All of this comes together on 9 October, when Levi’s® and the artists kick off a special one-night event celebrating "A Journey to the Modern Frontier" with a live performance of their work that answers the question, "What Moves You?" Levi’s® will be filming the night's performance and producing a two-part film that fans will be able to watch at Levi.com. You can RSVP now to attend Tuesday's festivities. You can also become an indelible part of this creative effort by sharing your own thoughts about what inspires and moves you.


In the meantime, check out more amazing art projects that have been created as part of this creative exploration.

Over the Rainbow: An Interview With Herb Alpert

Music legend Herb Alpert discusses his new album, Over the Rainbow, maintaining his artistic drive, and his place in music history. "If we tried to start A&M in today's environment, we'd have no chance. I don't know if I'd get a start as a trumpet player. But I keep doing this because I'm having fun."
