Five music makers. One graphic designer. One challenge: to create a new & unique piece of artwork each week, for three months.
This is the High Noon Artist Pact; if you don’t know that name by now, you need to get acquainted. They’ve taken ‘practice makes perfect’ to a whole new level and the differences in their skill levels at the end of this challenge compared to when they began will be like night and day. Each week, a word of inspiration will be chosen to give the artists a loose idea of what to base their creation on. The rest is up to them.
We’ll be covering the entirety of the challenge, so you can watch (and listen to) its full development here. To get you started, check out the music from last week’s leg of the challenge below; read on to meet the artists themselves and get an earful of this week’s tunes!
HIGH NOON ARTIST PACT
Week 7 was a rough one for the High Noon crew; only 3 out of the 5 musicians finished their track before the deadline. We feel the struggle, life can most certainly get heavy from time to time. That being said, VNDMG, WERK, and Chase Manhattan all brought the heat on their submissions for this batch. The inspirational word this time around was ‘Electric’, which can definitely go either way when it comes to a musical theme; it could generate a high-voltage, uptempo banger or a or a chilled out, low-wattage number. You’ll hear a bit of both from the artists that made the cut, with high-pitched synth melodies and stuttering tones making sparks fly over resonant, grounding bass lines. To top it all off, Molly Brooks filled the High Noon logo with neon and completely re-imagined the vibe it sets for this week’s cover art.

Our favorite tune from this round was Chase Manhattan‘s ‘Stunner’. What was yours?
