And then there’s the Company’s partnership with Liquid Avatar Technologies (LQID:CSE) to bring AR Enhanced NFTs to market through Oasis Digital Studios, which on its face you couldn’t blame investors for once again thinking “ok cool little initiative” … until you discover:

  • On March 15th they teamed up with McCartney Media Inc to support the development of AR Enhanced NFT’s for the entertainment and lifestyle sectors, becoming a major player in the NFT space.
  • Today, just two weeks later, LQID, IP and McCartney Multimedia announced that renowned photographer, artist and former music executive, May Pang is bringing her personal and exclusive collection of John Lennon’s Lost Weekend photographs featuring her intimate 18 months with the rock ‘n’ roll icon to the Non-Fungible Token (NFT) collector market through Oasis Digital Studios.

Now let’s Rock’n’Roll!” commented May Pang , Artist

In September 1973 , while separated from 2 nd wife Yoko, May Pang and John Lennon left New York for Los Angeles to promote Mind Games and began an 18-month relationship, which John affectionately and publicly referred to this period of his life as his “Lost Weekend”.

While there, Lennon was inspired to embark on two recording projects: to make an album of the old rock ‘n’ roll songs that inspired him to become a musician.  In October 1973 , Lennon collaborated with Phil Spector to record the oldies album, Rock ‘n’ Roll, which Lennon would ultimately complete with the same musicians he used on Walls and Bridges .

Pang also arranged for Julian Lennon to visit his father for the first time in almost three years and Julian began to see his father more regularly. Lennon bought Julian a Gibson Les Paul guitar and a drum machine for Christmas in 1973 and encouraged Julian’s interest in music by showing him some chords.

In March 1974 , Lennon began producing Harry Nilsson’s Pussy Cats album, thus named to counter the “bad boy” image the pair had earned in the media at Los Angeles famed music club, The Troubadour. At that time, Lennon thought it would be a good idea for the musicians to live under one roof. to ensure they would get to the studio on time, so Nilsson rented a beach house in Santa Monica , for himself, May, Lennon, Klaus Voormann, Ringo Starr , and Keith Moon to live in.

During this period, Pang encouraged Lennon to reach out to family and friends. He and Paul McCartney mended fences and played together for the first and only time after the breakup of the Beatles, which became the bootleg album A Toot and a Snore in ’74 .

In May 1974 , Lennon and Pang returned to live in Manhattan.  While visiting Mick Jagger at Andy Warhol’s compound in Montauk, New York , Lennon, and Pang saw a Scottish-style cottage for sale close to the Montauk Point Lighthouse.  Lennon asked a real estate broker to put in an offer for it in January 1975.  In the same month, Lennon and Pang were also planning on visiting Paul and Linda McCartney in New Orleans , where Wings were recording the Venus and Mars album, but Lennon reconciled with Yoko in February, just before the planned visit, thus ending the relationship with Pang.

Pang received an RIAA gold record award for her work on Walls and Bridges and continued her work as production coordinator of Lennon’s Rock ‘n’ Roll album, where she was credited as “Mother Superior”.  Pang also worked on albums by Nilsson, Starr, Elton John , and David Bowie .

“I have known May for many years and always been an admirer of her spirit and energy, not to mention her eye for taking a great photograph. McCartney Multimedia is honoured to be representing this historically significant art in the new digital universe,” said Ruth McCartney , Digital Diva, and founder of McCartney Multimedia.

ABOUT MAY PANG
May Pang was born in 1950, the daughter of Chinese immigrants, she grew up in New York’s Spanish Harlem.  May is best known for her 18-month relationship with John Lennon , often referred to as “The Lost Weekend” and her subsequent marriage to music producer, Tony Visconti .  May is also a successful photographer, author and jewelry designer with her work represented around the world.  Her intimate and truthful portraits of John Lennon during their time together are of significant importance, with rare images of John and his first son, Julian.  In addition to working for Apple Records and Lennon, May also worked in music publishing / A & R for Island Records and United Artists.  In 2010 May launched her own line of Feng Shui jewelry and subsequently the Linda Mai collection, an exquisite range inspired by her mother’s extraordinary dress sense and jewelry designs, crafted entirely from vintage Swarovski crystals that her mother used back in the day.

ABOUT NFTs
A Non-Fungible Token, or NFT is a digital asset that represents a wide range of tangible and intangible assets like digital and conventional artwork, collectibles, memorabilia, and other items.

ABOUT OASIS
Oasis brings together leading individuals and organizations in blockchain technology, computer graphics, augmented reality, entertainment, art, sports, gaming, music, media, comic book, memorabilia, and pop culture arenas to support the fast-paced emergence of the NFT marketplace.
