Introducing ‘Chase The Sun’ by Planetfunk – Visual Remixers
On December 1st, 2022, Demotapers will present its very first drop which will see Planet Funk’s iconic “Chase The Sun” track take on new shapes and forms as visual artists take the stage to remix the track visually — Artworks, that will be available for collectors to purchase within our dedicated marketplace.
When we talk about music today, it’s important to acknowledge it in a different way. In contrast to the past when music could only be listened to, today we must consider that the way we absorb music has completely changed: as a result of multimedia and social networks, we have become accustomed to associating music with images. In Demotapers, visual art is paired with music with the aim of creating an authentic artistic community in which visual artists, musicians, and enthusiasts can come together and connect within a whole new web3-driven ecosystem. To see such an iconic track, “Chase The Sun”, now represented within visual remixes, feels like a rebirth, as if the song from the past is being given a new life Alex Neri (Planet Funk Co-Founder)
