Orange County singer songwriter Allee Fütterer just released her new audio and visual NFT album entitled State College 333. The project, a collaboration between six musical artists and a visual artist, is a glowing multi-dimensional album that pays homage to Allee’s hometown and the rich and underrepresented artist community found in Fullerton, California.
State College 333 is an eight-track album with a wide variety of musical styles by some of Southern California’s rising talent. The artists featured are Dresage, Pom Poms, Clayre (Kismit), Niko Giaimo (The Astronots), Basti Reunert (Kismit), and Conny Franko. From pop to skate rock and even some hip hop aspects, the album has no boundaries when it comes to sound. For the visual elements, Allee enlisted the help of creative director and nostalgia enthusiast Emma Cole, who brought the project’s aesthetics to new heights by the use of analog devices for a mix of past and future combined.
Released on web3 via top multimedia creative hub Metabyte Studios, the project includes 333 NFTs, with each NFT owner receiving a unique combination of musical and visual elements from each track.
“I’d like people to interact with my music and creations in ways that you’re not able to do by just listening to a song. Since the scope of my musical life is very wide I see music NFT’s as a way to share creations in a more broad sense that doesn’t require an obligation to a specific genre or musical role. I’d like to use this as an opportunity to meet new fans and have them experience the culture that shaped me, both digitally and IRL,” shares Fütterer.
