Cloud Cult Seeks Fan Input For Upcoming Band Documentary
Download: Cloud Cult - "Living on the Outside of Your Skin"
Regardless of what you think about their music, there's no doubting the fact that Minneapols-based Cloud Cult have had a compelling career, one that's been marked by a unique sense of intertwining art and economics, strident environmentalism, and unspeakable tragedy.
Also, music. Lots and lots of music, specifically eight albums worth of cathartic anthems heavy on orchestral arrangements (long indie-fans started reading from the Neon Bible). Naturally, a story as compelling and wrought with drama as that one would serves as a great foundation for a documentary. Well, lucky for you Cloud Cult fans, the band happens to be putting together a film which will span the entirety of the band's career. In order to get a unique, fan-based perspective, the group is encouraging fans to come out to their studio this Sunday, Sept. 7th for an interview. The band's news letter explains in further detail:
If you're someone who has been touched by Cloud Cult's music and message, please consider contributing by stopping into the studio in downtown Minneapolis on Sunday, September 7th for a 15-20 minute interview...any personal stories or messages you'd like to send to the band are welcome. Many of you have profoundly unique experiences, and we'd like to hear them. If interested, please RSVP (ASAP) to the film's co-director, John Burgess at firstname.lastname@example.org with "CLOUD CULT INTERVIEW" in the subject line. Please mention any time preferences you may have regarding your schedule this Sunday afternoon.
From there, Burgess will contact you with a time slot assignment and directions to the downtown Minneapolis location. All in all, the experience should take about 30 minutes. If you can't make it out, but still want to contribute your memories of the band, email email@example.com by October 1st.
