GΞNΞSIS BY DON DIABLO
For my GΞNΞSIS (1 of 1) piece I wanted to create something truly unique. This NFT is a magical combination of three elements: an unreleased song + a holographic synthesizer…and it comes with a physical hand built hologram cabinet + cartridge to display the art in a truly unique way in your living room. I started working on this particular song at the beginning of my career in 2001. Since then I have continued working on it every single year. I must have spent over 250 hours in total on the song and never found the right purpose or timing to share it with the world, up until now. The animation of the hologram synthesizer is based on the very first keyboard I bought as a kid, to make things truly full circle. The idea for the hexagon hologram cabinet (HEXAGRAM) and the cartridge derives from my love for both Star Wars as well as old school Nintendo gaming consoles. My genesis piece is nostalgia mixed with my vision for the future of digital art and music.
