Demotapers Classics: All about Friday’s Drop on objktcom featuring Italian Tenor Vittorio Grigolo’s “Una Furtiva Lagrima” interpreted Visually by Laurence Fuller & Von Doyle

Following the success of its premiere on December 1st 2022, which featured Planet Funk’s “Chase The Sun,” Demotapers continues to showcase the strong interdependence between music and visual arts with its distinctive music and visual NFT ecosystem.

On Friday January 27th, the curtains open on the second act of Demotapers, “Demotapers Classics”, which will see Italian tenor Vittorio Grigolo’s “Una Furtiva Lagrima” interpreted by visual artists Laurence Fuller and Von Doyle as part of an exclusive drop on objktcom.

Demotapers is the first web3 platform to offer the market NFT drops centered around celebrating the unique ties between music and visual arts: a music & visual NFT ecosystem where musicians, visual artists, and their community can share, trade, and collect limited-edition unique artworks.

From his debut as soloist in the choir of the Sistine Chapel to his role as leading tenor in the most prestigious theatres in the world, the career of Vittorio Grigolo is a story of talent, passion and dedication — With the powerful and evocative “Una Furtiva Lagrima” by Gaetano Donizetti, Grigolo takes spectators on a journey of hope, longing, and unrequited love.

The protagonist of the track, Nemorino, longs for Adina, who initially seems uninterested in him. To win her love, he buys a love potion only to realize it’s just wine and that she’s loved him all along, after noticing a hidden tear in her eye (una furtiva lagrima).

Today this journey of love from the 19th century is reimagined visually through the contemporary lens of visual artists Laurence Fuller and Von Doyl, who render the piece with timeless romanticism and modern poetics.

“I wanted to see how we could modernize Donizetti’s opera, which was written at the beginning of the 19th century, in order to bring it into the Web3 era of digital art.”
– Von Doyle

“Vittorio’s voice singing this exceptional rendition of a classic weaving beautiful expressions of high emotion through these visions of a lost world and side by side with my spoken word reading of the English translation ~ brought a new found inspiration to my process.”
– Laurence Fuller

In addition to offering an unparalleled opportunity to collect and experience a timeless work of art, this drop also enables collectors to enjoy a special utility linked to it: 1/1 pieces by Laurence Fuller and Von Doyle will in fact give access to one of Vittorio’s upcoming concerts worldwide. 

The drop will take place on objktcom on Friday, January 27th at 6 pm CET / 12 pm ET and involve the following dynamics:

– Laurence Fuller will present two pieces, the first consisting of 999 editions at 6 xtz each, whereas the second consisting of a 1/1 with a fixed price at 1500 xtz.
– Von Doyle will present a 1/1 piece up to auction over the course of 24 hours, with the minimum bid starting at 500 xtz.
