Here’s are brand new ringtone gifts from the band Good Night, States. Tonight they’re celebrating the release of their new EP, The Impossible Tension, at the Thunderbird Cafe in Lawrenceville. A number of weeks ago, when I recorded live ringtones with them, they expressed a desire to share a new series of tones straight from their upcoming album with the public for free. I was into the idea considering ringtones cost anywhere from .99 to $2.99 and since one of this project’s goals is to replace a system of commerce with one of shared creativity.
In Steve Gretz’s words, the ringtone tracks consist of “one sound from each song. I tried to use interesting sounds that wouldn’t just be the song itself, and each one is set up to loop pretty nicely.” I can dig it, Steve.
Good luck on the show tonight, GN,S, and thanks for sharing more of your work within this public art project! Maybe today’s contribution to the project will help to set a new tone-sharing model for other bands to follow!
Here are the sweet tone gifts (in order of the tracks on the EP):
