Play Through The Pain

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.

You can hear the original messages as well as the musical results right here.
