Brad Walsh is a musician and artist known for his dance remixes and experimental tracks. We talked to him about his most recent project Antiglot, an album built on the layering of lyric-less vocals and sounds made with the body—all inspired by the current American political climate. DRØME was inspired to create an experimental visual representation of his track "March"; we wanted to capture the feeling behind the vocals. It's guttural and purely emotional, a response to the women's march last year.
Watch the the video above to hear more from Walsh and see why he is our latest CRUSH.
In the making of DRØME we hope to showcase a community of doers and nourish an attitude of empathy in a world that teaches us to pass judgment rather than practice kindness. The stories, images, and people shared in this magazine are an amalgamation of perspectives often overlooked or explicitly excluded from art and media worlds. The dearth of diverse identities and viewpoints within the arts is harrowing, especially for a young generation that is fighting its hardest to overcome conservative notions of order ultimately practiced as acts of discrimination against the very people and things we find most inspiring. In DRØME, the featured creators and creations encourage us to never shy away from who we are and what we want. Each artist, in sharing their story, embodies their own definition of agency. Against a mainstream ideology that indoctrinates patriarchal, capitalist, and hateful theories turned into policy, the artists in our first issue represent the ways in which art can take power back from society's denigrating control.
