About Hashmusic is generative music based on melodies drawn from Ethereum block hashes, created by composer Elliot Cole. Hashflowers is the genesis collection of 100 pieces created in collaboration with artist Maxwell Arkin, based on the songs sung by the first 7 block hashes on the Ethereum blockchain. Blending the algorithmic, natural, and the handmade, these unique pieces invite you to get lost in dreamlike sonic forests of hashy meditation and contemplation.

Details

For an in-depth look at the technical and musical process used to create these pieces, read the blog post by Elliot Cole:

Perks of Owning a Hashflower

If you currently or have ever owned a hashflower, you can:

  • claim a free vinyl double LP of the music (claim yours here, while supplies last)
  • meet the artist (zoom call with Elliot)
  • get free VIP access to future performance events

Elliot Cole is a composer, producer, and "charismatic contemporary bard" (NY Times) whose music evokes “sparkling icicles of sound” (Rolling Stone). He scored the VR experience Evolver (e.d. Terrence Malick), alongside Jonny Greenwood (Radiohead) and Wu Tang Clan, and he has written for and performed with GRAMMY Winners Roomful of Teeth, GRAMMY Nominees A Far Cry, and many other ensembles. He teaches composition and music technology at Juilliard. His music is widely performed around the world.

Maxwell Arkin was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. His work for artist Travis Scott and fashion designer Virgil Abloh successfully combines graphic and conceptual design. Arkin has an innate curiosity that helps him absorb various inspirations and recontextualize them in new and exciting ways. He is currently concentrating on projects in product innovation, obscuring the clean-cut definitions that have traditionally shrouded it.
