I love Cash

February 1, 2011 § 5 Comments

When I hear that trumpet sound/I’m gonna rise out of the ground.

I do not know if we are going to meet Johnny Cash down the river road, but we sure are going to meet all of his fans. Cash’s final studio recording “Ain’t No Grave is being revived in the Johnny Cash project.

The Johnny Cash project is a post-mortem tribute to the Man In Black, an online, interactive project, where participants from all over the web can create their unique and personal portraits of Johnny, using a custom drawing tool, in a single template. All these different drawings, compiled by director Chris Milk, responsible also for the mind-blowing  Wilderness Downtown, are integrated in a collective music video. Actually not only one video but different, ever-changing, randomly generated videos.

Each drawing constitutes a different frame of the music video, and all of them are combined in different versions of the song. Thus, you can choose to see, among others, the most-brushstrokes-per-frame version, or the one with-the-most-realistic frames.

See more after the jump.

“Ain’t No Grave” is all about death, immortality and resurrection, and  The Johnny Cash project does immortalize Cash’s music.

I think I can hear trumpets playing, afterall. Can you?
