Sometimes there’s pain that even a double dose of Extra Strength Tylenol can’t touch. American performance artist/composer Ze Frank posted a phone number and asked that anyone experiencing emotional pain leave him a message. And they did. From that raw, sincere and often distraught material musicians and DJs crafted hundreds of musical samples, which became Pain Pack. It’s an interesting glimpse into a collaboration, and you know — misery loves company.
