Armenian-American composer and pianist, Armen Ghazarian, releases his first original compositions: Untold Destiny, Op. 1 and Prelude No. 1 in C Minor, Op. 2.

Published

on

Ghazarian embarked on his compositional career in 2021 with these two short piano pieces, which were released to all streaming platforms on 8/25/2021.
Prelude No. 1 in C Minor, Op. 2 opens with an elegant, somber, and story-like melody which quickly escalates into an emotional diatribe. The original melody was written by Ghazarian when he was in high school. It was written for a homework assignment – an artistic response to Parzival by Wolfram von Eschenbach. This piece is inspired by Parzival’s punishment, when he is cursed for his ignorance and believes that God has turned against him. The piece ends with a rageful climax, leaving the listener with Parzival’s unresolved anguish, setting the stage for the next piece in this release.
Untold Destiny, Op. 1 begins with a charming yet melancholic intro which quickly takes a mysterious turn into the unknown. The piece slowly builds up and develops into a triumphant march, bringing optimism and resolution. The album artwork for this release, created by graphic artist Levon Parsegov (@levonpa on Instagram) depicts a shaggy, old, and blind anonymous man (resembling the famous Armenian composer, Arno Babajanyan) who has his back turned to the darkness. When asked to explain the meaning of this piece, Ghazarian said “It’s about the centuries old struggle and of the Armenian people… the darkness of the past has left its mark, but the future is still untold.” The man on the cover is facing a lighter, neutral color, which represents the untold future (destiny).

How are NFT artists making thousands of artworks?!

Published

on

Code-based digital art creation explained

NFT series have been wildly successful for their unique ability to feature collections that are created through image composition algorithms.

Unlike conventional art, where a piece is created as one image, the merging of coding and illustration allows for the combining of multiple pre-made characteristics to create unique digital art pieces.

Each trait is assigned a numerical value on a scale of rarity, therefore creating a ranked system of the entire collection from least to most rare (valuable).

Each trait is represented by 1 layer, compiled on top of each other to make the finished image, as is done in programs such as Adobe Photoshop.

This is how Artists are able to make collections featuring thousands of works, something previously only possible through decades of work.

Blockchain technology has birthed a beautiful system of cooperation between Artists and coders, each contributing unique skills

This method of generation can be likened to creating a character in a video game, you personalise it by choosing from a gallery of traits that all fit seamlessly onto the ‘base layer’; different eyes, noses, mouths, headwear, outfits, accessories etc all combine to make something truly unique.

Randomising libraries of character traits means that the possible combinations can number in the millions.

When you see the words ‘NFT collection’, the image of 8bit pixel art may come to mind. Though this art style seems to be the most viral sweeping through the Blockchain art-sphere (mainly in part due to the first hugely successful implementation of this tech in ‘CryptoPunks’), it isn’t because of limitations on image generation technology.

Fully-rendered detailed artwork is fast taking over the NFT space, backlash against the monetary value vs effort/intricacy of the artworks has bred a new and higher quality wave of collections.

Take Jailbirds as an example

This series caught our eye for it’s creative and grungy crime based concept that not only includes unique characters but also unique (felony) histories to go with them.

We couldn’t help but view this series as less of an art collection and more of an alternate-reality winged criminal database.

With the inclusion of crypto and defi (decentralised finance) related crimes and punishments alongside detailed illustration and an imaginative backstory, as well as an impressive library of over 300 traits, this collection ticks all the boxes of a thoughtfully designed NFT concept.

‘BItconnect’ refers to a large Ponzi Scheme that Lost investors $2Bn after the coin’s price dropped from almost $500 to less than $1

The inclusion of each character’s criminal charge does more than add interesting detail to the piece, it places them in a ranked database within the Jailbird meta verse.

NFT creators are branching out into interactive value-creating projects beyond the art collections themselves; featuring virtual spaces (similar to Hambo Hotel), games with in-game currency and earning potential as well as comics, miniseries and physical goods.

We have a feeling we’re only seeing the tip of the iceberg when it comes to NFT implementation, watch this space!
