NFT Musicians of Tezos: Are There Any Good Albums on OBJKT?
We consider someone who has released at least one collection of tokens in a uniform style an NFT artist. The same criterion can be used for NFT musicians: a few tracks in their own style plus music as one of the main directions, not as a random experiment.
This post is about NFT musicians whose works are pleasant to listen to and available for purchase on the OBJKT marketplace.
psyCo Cute: Psychodelic Music for Robots
A user under the pseudonym guruguruhyena writes music that can be described in one sentence: it’s how people in the 80s imagined the sounds of supercomputers.
His best (in our opinion) track called Cat Computin is separate from the primary collection and is an animated clip lasting three minutes. Yes, a full-fledged psychedelic video instead of a looped GIF.
The rest of the author’s music can be found on his pages on OBJKT or Bandcamp.
Mediant: Drown in Your Thoughts
Mediant writes pleasant tracks resembling Andrew Hulshult’s soundtrack for Dusk. It sounds like a very old synth has a melancholic mood and lasts up to two minutes, so it doesn’t get boring.
The best track—My Broken Heart in 8 copies—sells for one tez. Apart from that, Mediant has only released three works, but we hope to see more on his OBJKT or Bandcamp soon.
Joey Cough: 2000’s Hip Hop
If you miss the old Eminem tracks and want something similar, listen to Joey Cough. A very familiar instrumental in the intro, with emphasis on middle frequencies in the vocals and lyrics with social commentary.
You can listen to three of his works on OBJKT, but you’ll have to go to YouTube for the rest.
Mort Espiral: Try to Relax
Finally, a musician who released an album of eight tracks and a dozen more individual tracks on OBJKT.
Most of all, we enjoyed Sekhmet, full of oriental motifs, but the album with black covers was delightful and melodic too. Suitable to put on in the background and relax.
Listen to him on OBJKT or YouTube.
SIGRID: Strong Female Vocals
Almost all of the NFT tracks we listened to were made on a computer. But SIGRID records live and offers enjoyable vocals with somewhat exquisite instrumentation.
Apart from the voice and the overall style, hand-drawn covers for each token make the music stand out even more.
Listen on OBJKT.
WOZUBERLIN: Experimental Music
Musicians experiment with sounds, rhythm, volume, and other components. More often than not, experimental music is hard to accept if it sounds like anything musical at all. But WOZUBELIN has succeeded.
There are more than 20 tracks on his OBJKT page, and each one is unique in its own way. We recommend starting with the ones with animated previews and then deciding whether to listen further.
Dervishfather: the Cover Art Says It All
Dervishfather’s tracks vary in style: there’s jazz, national motifs, Akira Yamaoka-like melancholy on the Silent Hill 2 soundtrack, and horror music with brass and electronic instruments and an unexpected ending.
We recommend listening to all his NFTs at once because there’s sure to be something for everyone. There are 11 of them, ranging from 45 seconds to 3 minutes in length.
