It has been confirmed that the first Stradivarius Violin NFTs are set to launch at next week’s NFT.NYC event. The NFT Classics Society will release the NFT Collection of Cobbett Stradivarius Violins on June 20th, the opening day of the event.
The Stradivarius Violin NFT
The NFTs to be launched will contain both video and audio. The NFTs merge the images of a violin made in Cremona in 1683 by Antonio Stradivari, the “Cobbett”. Along with a performance of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Chaconne on the violin.
These NFTs are offered in three tiers. The first tier, Maestro, is video art created from 360-degree photographs of the violin and Bach’s 14-minute Chaconne performance. The second tier, Virtuoso, is a series of 31 unique NFTs featuring the original Cobbett-themed artwork by acclaimed South Korean digital artists Sho Jang and Sangeun Won. The third tier, Prodigy, consists of 93 unique NFTs. The images are 3D generative art derived by AI from the photographs of Cobbett Stradivarius.
Starting June 20th, the first stage will be auctioned and the second and third stages will be available for purchase on OpenSea, the largest NFT marketplace.
At NFT.NYC, the NFT Classics Society will be exhibiting NFT.NYC digital art and Soul Night is a four-day event also held as part of the broader conference. Hosted by Aeon Studio and AI Network, this event attracts key players and enthusiasts of NFTs, AI and arts.
NFT.NYC is the world’s premier annual NFT conference. It takes place in New York City, the most populous and probably the most famous city in the USA.
It has been held in the city since 2019. In 2021, the event attracted at least 5,000 NFT fans to many different unique events hosted there by various projects, companies and influencers in the NFT space.
Projects like the Bored Ape Yacht Club and celebs like GaryVee hosted events last year.
