Beauty of the Unfamiliar

Posted by on Jul 16, 2020

This is stunning. Ambitious? Perhaps. But stunning, definitely.

Austin-based music artist Mobley organized something gargantuan with A Home Unfamiliar, a tremendous multi-media undertaking and an intriguing experiment in collaborative creativity, back in April. Tomorrow, Friday July 17, marks its world premiere. Conceived and directed by Mobley, it includes the contributions of 30 musicians and filmmakers from Austin and surrounding areas, each of whom had two days to work on their segment. All music and visuals were created instinctively, with only a remote glimpse of the artist’s work placed before theirs in the visual album.

You can experience A Home Unfamiliar starting via Alamo On Demand. Proceeds benefit the Central Texas Food Bank and the DAWA Fund.
