As the coronavirus crisis continues to reduce global social life to a minimum, multiple high-profile rock and hardcore acts have collaborated together on what is called the ISOLATE/CREATE project.
With a goal of encouraging people to “Stay at home and make something cool. All for the greater good of stopping the literal apocalypse”, some bands involved with the project include La Dispute, Converge, Pelican, Chelsea Wolfe, and The Armed.
The platform allows for anyone to access various forms of digital assets relating to the involved bands. The assets currently available are predominantly multi-track studio files, although La Dispute have also uploaded PDF instructions for their role-playing game, ‘Crystal Healing’.
The project statement reads as follows.
“ISOLATE/CREATE is a free resource providing creatives with digital assets to spark creativity and inspire digital collaboration, all while still practicing responsible social distancing and helping flatten the curve during the Covid-19 crisis.
Stay at home and make something cool. All for the greater good of stopping the literal apocalypse.
Share your work using #isolatecreate. Please support the contributing artists via the links in their profiles if you are able.”
