The unique NFT collaboration project “Parallel Hopes” is launched

Liverpool, UK, Jan. 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Christian Burns, the hugely successful British musician, and Parin Heidari, Iranian-born pioneering and award-winning digital artist and graphic designer, have collaborated on a new volume of artwork titled “Parallel Hopes”, which will be uploaded to Origin Story on Monday, January 24, 2022.

Origin Story is a unique creator-owned NFT Marketplace. It allows artists to create NFTs, customize their online shopping site, engage with audiences, and participate in platform governance while delivering unique art and digital experiences to audiences around the world. . It was the platform of choice for “Parallel Hopes,” which promises an unprecedented experience for art and music lovers from all walks of life.

‘Parallel Hopes’ was born out of a chance encounter between Christian Burns and Parin Heidari in Liverpool. Mr. Burns has enjoyed immense success in the music industry for the better part of the past two and a half decades. He’s written music for Grammy-nominated albums, racked up tens of millions of online streams, and had world-famous hits with some of the biggest names in electronic music, such as Tiësto, BT, and Armin van Buuren.

Parin Heidari, while arguably equally successful, comes from an entirely different world. Her career spans 15 years and she has also worked with some of the world’s biggest brands including Phillips, BMW, Tom Ford and Luxottica. His work was even featured in the Emmy Award-winning Dutch film “Rabbi.” She was even selected to be a featured artist on Time Magazines first NFT broadcast for Timepieces and has seen her work thrust into the limelight, sparking immense interest in her current and past works. What makes Ms. Heidari’s work particularly interesting is that she suffers from synesthesia, a neurological condition in which Ms. Heidari can “see” colors, faces, shapes and stories when she hears music.

What “Parallel Hopes” does is explore – from the respective but contrasting perspectives of Mr. Burns and Ms. Heidari – the trials and frustrations facing emerging artists in the music and entertainment spaces. digital art/illustration. These are industries that often operate in secrecy, out of public view, guarded by outdated gatekeepers and traditional systems. “Parallel Hopes” aims to convey messages of hope through the work of both artists – via music, as in Mr. Burns, and expressions of hope in darker stories, such as c This is the case for Mrs. Heidari.

The “Parallel Hopes” collection includes five otherworldly bespoke musical works performed by Mr. Burns. Each musical note in these works will be interpreted through Ms. Heidari’s eyes to create a remarkably primitive work of art, in which sound and visual art are intertwined in a collection of deep, resonant, nuanced and unique artistic expression.

According to Mr. Burns and Ms. Heidari, “We believe that blockchain technology will liberate the arts, and more than anything, our greatest parallel hope is that this project will inspire other artists to dream big and push the boundaries of what is. possible in this space.

Commendable words indeed. Those interested can learn more by visiting Origin Story or following Parin Heidari Art and Christian Burns.
