In partnership with Levi’s®, I’m very proud to present our stop-motion music video entitled “GOOD NIGHTS” — a piece that captures the essence of our collaboration RE: THE ROAD.  
Watching “Good Nights” immediately gives you a complete sensory experience of what it’s like to be on a physical journey and far apart from the one(s) you love.  ”Good Nights” also embodies the creative collaborative process that hitRECord uses to create art.  Thousands of image, video and audio records were contributed to our collaboration RE: THE ROAD, and a handful of RECorders edited them together creating this patchwork-quilt video collage.  ”Good Nights” started out as an instrumental guitar piece by TheTenant (Cyprus).  theboxsets (USA) added music, lyrics and a vocal performance.  xobreexo23 (USA) shot a series of self portraits to create a visual through-line.  tori (United Kingdom) and IrmaVep (United Kingdom) tied the entire piece together physically and stylistically by providing art-direction and stop-motion video editing.
As you may or may not know, Levi’s® has partnered with hitRECord this year to empower our community to create the art we make — short films, music, writing and images.  Levi’s® has a rich history of empowering great artists and innovators.  It means a lot to me that Levi’s® has come on board to recognize the artists at hitRECord by supporting the art we make together.
And, thanks again,

COME &amp; MEET OUR NEW RESIDENT CURATORS!
==
EXCITING NEWS!  We’ve added 8 new Resident Curators to the team!
Several months ago we assembled a team of 8 Resident Curators from the community to assist in featuring records. We were so pleased with how well this initiative went we decided to add more Resident Curators to our team.
These new Resident Curators are not only awesome artists in their own right, but their recommendations have helped us collectively gravitate toward records that our production company can use. They’ve demonstarted a solid understanding of the direction our company is headed.
==
So, without further ado, I introduce to you hitRECord’s 2nd round of Resident Curators:
Metaphorest (Text &amp; Audio)
ppeppina (Audio)
12:42 (Video)
Pamagotchi (Audio)
TheSerpentTheCharmer (Text &amp; Image)
