/// Learning to appreciate fake music can permanently enrich your life. Why is this so? If it was as soon as possible depicting rather than everything individual viewing waiting to hear from you today This is a new level.

Fake Music is the object and title of a research platform in the form of a record label initiated by Sara Blumenthal and Willy Smart in early 2013. Fake Music hosts conceptual works that operate on principles of spuriousness, insincerity, incompleteness and failure, or that otherwise eschew a relation to realness or the real.
Sara Blumenthal understands how to work at a computer, a painting, and a keyboard. She expresses herself best through live communication and is an arts administrator, experimentalist, collaborator, currently working at MASSMoCA as part of the cultural economic development department. http://cargocollective.com/sarablumenthal
