Singer, musician and art world star-in-the-making, Kena Rose, has teamed up with Grammy-winning songwriter and producer, Genzo, and award-winning songwriter, Cheryl Yie (who happen to be her parents), to create WHATEVER, the first generative pop song and PFP project on Async to utilize the Music Blueprints tool.
WHATEVER’s masterful layers upon layers of music and art can generate over 120 million unique NFTs. What also makes this drop special is each mint will be a fully-realized, full-length version of a complete song, with different beats, instruments, and even vocal and melodic parts, covering such varied genres as electronic and pop and rock. Multiple sets of lyrics have been written, further adding to the diversity of each mint. Likewise, whatever (pun intended) art/PFP that is generated will have its own personality, with each color, facial feature, hairstyle, background element and more carefully and thoughtfully created by Kena to match the mood of the music. Three lucky collectors may also find themselves with one of the 3 unique mixes or “legendaries” of WHATEVER, each paired with their own animated version of the artwork done by Kena. You never know what you might get with this blind mint: “you get whatever you get and you won’t get upset!”
You want utility? The WHATEVER team is granting Collectors licensing rights to their unique recording (*see details below). In short, WHATEVER can be used with no limitation for personal use and can be potentially licensed for use on screen or stage or other commercial exploitations (with Creators’ permission), generating income for both Collector(s) and the Creators. As early believers in Kena’s journey, holders of WHATEVER will have early access to upcoming drops and perhaps more as her career progresses.
The magic number is THREE—3 creators, 3 sets of chorus lyrics, 3 legendary mixes, Async’s third Music Blueprint release. Only 333 mints will be available!
