Ziggurats is a collection of 5000 mini-mixtapes, each with unique music & cover art created by Mike Shinoda.
Mike Shinoda is a founding member of Linkin Park, has a long music career winning an impressive amount of awards such as the American Music Awards (6 x), Billboard Music Awards (2 x), Grammy Awards (2 x), MTV Music Awards (25 x) and 34 other awards worldwide.
Each NFT in the Ziggurats series is similar in the sense that the lyrics are the same for every song, but both the music and cover art for every NFT is unique.
“Ziggurats is a music project, first and foremost. It’s a collection of 5000 mini-mixtapes, each almost 7 minutes long, each one with unique music and unique cover art.5
The vocals are the same on all, but the music and the artwork is built from layers, made by me, assembled in unique combinations so that no two are alike. The cover art is done in illustrative, profile-pic style.” – Mike Shinoda
