// Station 1 // Track Details
You Can’t Touch This is the eighth verse for “The Awakening” live concert, featuring Eric Pan improvising on keyboards with atmospheric synth effects.
Title and cover artwork take inspiration from “You Can’t Touch This”, a mashup of Natalie Shau’s photography with DeeKay’s animated creation, by Wintermute. “You Can’t Touch This” is Meme Card #32, minted in November 2022 under cc0, as part of SZN 1; “GM Everyone” is Meme Card #87, minted in April 2023 under cc0, as part of SZN 3, of _The Memes by 6529_.
Collection of this track-pressing relinquishes it of all copyright, making the music freely available for remix, sampling, commercial use, and other derivative creation — a.k.a. cc0 licensing terms.
// Station 2 // Catalog x The Memes by 6529
“Live from the Open Metaverse” is a concert program curated by Eric Pan (pandelic.eth), the first-ever instrumental performance series transmitted throughout the permissionless metaverse, hosted by OnCyber.io in the 6529 Museum District.
“The Awakening” is its second concert, featuring Eric Pan on keyboards playing a fully improvised set for a live metaverse audience, mixing jazz, percussive piano, and synth effects.
This performance, recorded on the 9th of April, 2023, celebrates _The Memes by 6529_ — an ongoing mission to broadcast the message of decentralization through art. It extends the ideas and energy of The Memes with music: first, through the presence and immediacy of live creation; and now, through the persistent memory of our public blockchain commons, available for unrestricted and free replay in perpetuity.
Since the artwork of The Memes is by principle cc0 — free to distribute, remix, and use commercially — the music of “The Awakening” is released to the world under the same terms, also upon purchase. Collectors of “The Awakening” receive the same status and perks as collectors of other pandelic.eth 1/1s (more below), with an additional benefit, therefore, to being the first collector of one of these: the act of purchase liberates the piece from all commercial copyright, releasing it into the world for anyone to use, sample, sell derivatives of, and so on.
