What's The Lab? Is my first on chain audiovisual album which I showcases my skills as an artist, producer, and audiovisual designer.
The album will includes 8 tracks and 2 videos (or probably more), each drops tells a different story, exploring different themes, genres and moods, offering an immersive experience for collectors, listeners and viewers alike.
"The Lab" is also a project that provides a way for artist-backers to interact, work together and support each other; in this project the top collectors become part of the team, having credits on the split , sharing percent of the album's earnings and unlocking exclusive rewards as a thanks for their support and contribution.
To provide you a sneak peek, I have prepared a series of demos with the purpose of showcasing some of the music that will be featured on the album and raising funds to cover the various expenses associated with it.
The top 3 collectors of each drop will receive credits as curators on one of the album tracks, along with a percentage of the on-chain earnings, a custom character of the Lab Crew collection and more rewards.
Collectors who own 10 or more demo discs of the pre-album also will receive a custom character from "The Lab Crew" when the album is released.

How are we going to build The Lab? To bring this album to life I'm seeking to raise 8 ETH to cover the album costs through the sale of 4 music NFTs that I mint to show you a little bit of the music that will be featured and raising funds to cover the various expenses associated with it.
