I love Cash

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