Today's world has a way of teaching us that who we are is not good enough as it is. It tells us that we're better when we look our best. And that as artists, our work requires polish before it can be seen.

But the truth is, the creations that come from us are at their most powerful, at their most potent, the moment they surface.

In her new work entitled 'Exposure', composer, vocalist and bassist Esperanza Spalding created an album of music in just 3 days, every second of the process broadcast live for a global audience.

The three-day livestream was on Facebook Live on September 12th, giving the audience a chance to see what it takes not just to create an album, but to create an album entirely composed on the spot.

Once the cameras started rolling, the audience witnessed every second of Esperanza's process, including her eating and taking breaks to sleep in the studio. Making it the first album ever created entirely on Facebook Live, not just for an audience, but with an audience, for an unprecedented 77 hour live feed.

After the record finished, a limited edition 7,777 CDs were be released. The packaging of each CD include a piece of the original notepaper Esperanza will have used to write the lyrics and music, allowing those who witnessed the process to own a piece of the creation itself, directly from the source.

Part of the theory behind Exposure comes from the idea that everything we've ever seen as people — anything we've ever seen, studied, heard, wished, read or thought — has been permanently captured by the mind. During Esperanza Spalding's Exposure, she'll aim to open this cache in her mind, allowing songs, lyrics, music and themes to develop spontaneously from the depths of her imagination and experience.
