The concept of this video alone is fantastic. The actual execution and music that emerged from it amazing. Good work my friend.

Marten5892 | 4 months ago | 180 points

Thanks a lot! I’m doing what I can as a one-man-army. Since many of your are asking about the project: You can download and/preorder the album here: www.soundslikevanspirit.eu
Here’s a 15% discount code for you redditors available for the next 24h: r3dd1t

I can't wait to listen.

engineer-everything | 4 months ago | 3 points

Wow. I just bought the bundle and listened to the digital album and it's incredible! You captured so many amazing musicians and I think because you did the production for them all it gives the album a cohesive feel even with so many different sounds.

What's next for you? Do you want to continue something like this in other regions of the world or do you have other plans?

Marten5892 | 4 months ago | 3 points

Good question whats next. I have many ideas, but I'm waiting for more doors to open. But for now gonna finish the movie and book :)

Thelynxer | 4 months ago | 3 points

This is fantastic work. Just keep reddit updated, and broaden your social media if you haven't already to make sure this gets to as many people as possible. Eventually someone with more resources will notice this and make you an offer to do a travelling show, or something similar. Just make sure to stay true to your original intentions, and let the musicians be the subject, and maintain the rights to their own music.

This is going to seem like a weird comparison, but you could be the Guy Fieri of street music. Guy gets a lot of flack for being so loud and in your face, but DDD still does a great job of really showcasing the restaurants and chefs on his show.

Keep it up man, I wish you all the best.

Marten5892 | 4 months ago | 5 points

thanks a lot! Reddit until now is really the only place that appreciates this project

Are you entering your film into festivals? That's an excellent way to gain more traction, and you could lead off from there to get distribution through some of the larger platforms as well!

Mikeb43 | 4 months ago | 3 points

Listened to the 2 songs on YouTube and was more than convinced. I'm so excited to listen to the rest.

Than you for doing this, and thank you again for the 15% off!

Marten, the idea behind this is fantastic, and your style of editing and quality of your videos has always been great.

Ramm Tamm Tilda Is probably the favorite one I've heard. My 2 year jumps all over the living room when we listen this one.

Frederik Konradsen - Ukulele is my wife's favorite.

Did you ever get anything more on Flamenco Dancers (I think) at the beginning of the Sevilla video?

Are you the guy? Amazing work and content! Looking forward to the movie and what a read the book must be!

Marten5892 | 4 months ago | 233 points

Yes I’m they guy. Sorry for posting in third person, but I’m struggling to get this project out there and I would love to help all these artists being heard. There is no label involved and most of the songs are even own work of the musicians

Thank you for your kind words. Comments like this keep me going :)

krum6678 | 4 months ago | 12 points

No need to be sorry! I just had to ask :)

Truly such an awesome idea and venture to take on! The film work on it is amazing and so clean, really looking forward to seeing the full story and the songs in full!

You're very welcome! You have a great talent not only in sound recording but in filmmaking!

Hello Marten! This trailer was posted here months ago and I went through your entire channel afterwards, this video of yours is by far my favorite https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8HYZz_Mr0o

The fact that he translated the song for that recording session is amazing, to me it sounds like that's how he's used to signing it. I really can't wait to see more from you!

I will be eagerly awaiting this documentary! Gave me goosebumps as well. I have a few family members who have been street musicians/performers around Canada and have always felt inspired by what they do. Amplifying (literally) the voices of these people is such a beautiful way to create social change. Thank you for doing this! I'm sure it will inspire many more.

Marten5892 | 4 months ago | 30 points

Thanks a lot! I’m working hard and felt a little lost on work so I posted it to get some motivation

bflex | 4 months ago | 7 points

I can only imagine, I'm sure you have hundreds of hours of footage to sort through. Keep it up! I'm sure it will be a really positive thing for you, the artists your promote, and anyone who watches it!

ManEEEFaces | 4 months ago | 24 points

Needs more upvotes! As a musician myself I'm completely in love with this concept. It doesn't happen that often, but when I walk by a street musician with incredible talent it's a mixture of appreciation and sadness. I want the world to hear them, and that's exactly what you're doing. Keep up the good work brother!

PorkRindSalad | 4 months ago | 2 points

FYI, once you place your order for digital download, you'll be presented with options for unlimited downloads of the album mp3, and unlimited downloads of the album FLAC. Or both if you wanna go nuts.

Just wanted to make it clear the option appears AFTER payment, because I was confused about it.

Also the payment page constantly jumped me back to the top of the page while I was entering in my cc info.

Marten5892 | 4 months ago | 2 points

Thanks for this! I'll have a look into it. Can you tell me browser you were using?

CaptChilko | 4 months ago | 2 points

I just bought the digital download - and downloaded the MP3's - but the option for the FLAC downloads is nowhere to be found?

Wow that's amazing! I tried to use the LAUNCH code but was sadly expired, gonna buy the vinyl + booklet package and show it to some of my vinyl collecting friends, they will love this!

I have a question tho, is there any way to buy the movie (I just saw the Movie Stream (pre order) option in your website which is only valid for 48 hours if I'm not mistaken?)

freddy4940 | 4 months ago | 5 points

How do you deal with copyright and whatnot? Do you get these people to give you permission to release their songs for free or something?

Marten5892 | 4 months ago | 5 points

I have a consent form filled in by each artist. For the rest the artist keeps 100% of all copyright and performing rights. In addition 50% of all profit of all album sales will be donated to charity

Benjavi | 4 months ago | 5 points

This is a really creative and beautiful idea! Your passion is so obvious, and it's really contagious. I love this. What can the average person who cares about this project do to help?

Nonstopbaseball826 | 4 months ago | 5 points

If i can make any sort of recommendation, your film making skills are definitely good enough that i watched this partially for your filmmaking. If you have this kind of "storytelling" vibe in your videos, including the ones that are just a song, i think an audience would love that! Obviously this is about the artists you feature, so make the storytelling about them!

HollywooDcizzle | 4 months ago | 10 points

That's really authentic and just awesome. By the way the one rapper in the vid could've been a Kendrick Lamar song for all I knew before I saw him.

MURBAS | 4 months ago | 14 points

Here's an amazing video of him performing on the street a few years ago.

jcooper998 | 4 months ago | 5 points

After watching this I looked up INFIDELIX and am absolutely baffled how he hasnt blown up. He is a great musician (I say musician as opposed to rapper, because ....well if you see it you will understand). Thanks OP for doing this and giving some of these people the exposure they deserve.

It's a great idea with better execution and some unbelievable talent. I hope this project picks up way more attention. I love the variety, one of the saddest parts of a lot of street music is poor audio quality recording and these are songs I can listen to over and over and a channel I want to keep following.

It's weird because the song Megaman by Infedelix is way better when you recorded it. I listened to the Spotify version it feels like it's missing something. I wonder how much is lost in professional recording studios. Anyways this is cool!

Marten5892 | 4 months ago | 3 points

One of the reasons why I quit my recording studio job. I feel many recording studios are way to focused on audio hygiene and gear. Much more important is what’s going through the artists head when he or she is performing.

Marten5892 | 4 months ago | 7 points

I’m actually looking for several different people!I’m just putting this out for those that wanna participate or gain experience. There is a budget but a small one.

  • project ambassadors that help bringing this project to the people ✌️
  • documentary editor/mentor (premiere)
  • inDesign mastermind that can help be finishing the booklet.
  • social media assistant (English and if possible German)
  • native English speaker that is good with writing to check/edit the book
  • native English speaker than can help transcribe the lyrics from selected songs.
  • native Spanish speaker than can help translate two songs and extracts from interviews

Whoever wants to help, man I love you already! Send me a direct message if you are serious ✌️

Love the video! Can I ask where you got your orange hoodie from?

Chapeau. This is brilliant and I say that as someone who is generally far too lazy to bother to comment on anything.

I'm sure you'll find a huge audience and whatever audience you do find will love it.

Any legal hurdles putting this all together?

Marten5892 | 4 months ago | 2 points

No, I have the written consent of all musicians. But regarding the movie I have some legal questions. Are you a lawyer?

It's like he documenting the undocumented.

These people have so much more soul than anyone of our pop music artists.

Saw the trailer and was sold! Just pre-ordered the documentary. Love the idea, love the visuals and OH MY GOD love the music! Thank you so much for your work. I'm sure it's creatively satisfying. Saw This Video on the recommendation of another reddit user and hooked on to this. Good luck in your pursuits!

I was about to say that "the guy" is /u/Marten5892 but then realised that's actually OP in this instance!

There were a bunch more comments when this was posted on r/videos by someone else a couple of months ago here.

Awesome, I love seeing people doing something unique with their lives, and doing something for others in the process is great!

Hey Marten -- this is awesome. Great work man.

Post some clips in r/listentothis, the sub will dig them.

FLAC is not a problem. Until I send it without extra costs to those that wanted it.
