”A Life among others” is a project that involves several elements. Book. Music. Video. All of these will be produced by the Ladysnow Society.
The Foundation for the entire project is a story in book format. The story are written right now and is a story about a man and his life. From adolescence through happiness and despair in adulthood and the solitude at the end of life. The book’s main character is based somewhere in the north of Sweden (Norrland) but travels all around the world.
Around you, every day, you see people that you have no idea who they are or what they have done. You can sit next to a man on the bus on the way to school which has an amazing story of his long journey that was made 40 years ago. At the next table at a lunch restaurant maybe there is someone who has been very close to death and got a brand new outlook on life. People wandering around on a Saturday morning on the town to find clothing or some other mundane thing may have done something outstanding, as to save someone from drowning. And in the midst of all this: You. You also have a life worth telling. A life among all these other lives. A life among others.
Every life should have a soundtrack. Unfortunately, it is not played music at every important event in one’s life. You have music around you almost all the time. Through your daily life, there is radios everywhere and bombards you with music chosen by someone else, in the clothing store, supermarket and the gym. Why then is it so that it almost never played the right music at the right time. Wouldn’t it be nice with an orchestra delivering a grand soundtrack at the same time you took your first steps in life. Or some lush strings that are played in the background when you kiss your future wife for the first time on a summer evening.
The man in the book will get a soundtrack for several of his important events. ”All this time you’ve been waiting for this” will be delivering the music and releasing it in the meantime that the book is written. The releases will be ten in number and every release will be in in EP format. A single song with text that is attached to an event in the book, an instrumental intro song for the single track, an alternate version of the song and a cinematic instrumental track in the more traditional style.
Now-a-days when almost every person in your surroundings has a smart phone with the ability to record video, you can almost film an entire life. A child today might have their first steps on video, graduation and all that comes later in life. However, it is usually not so fun to watch and usually one camera angle. Our main character will get a completely different movie experience through this project.
With every music release ”Faster More Intense” will produce a music video for one of the songs, also some short films are planned, each with a connection to the book.
