This was my contribution to the Secret 7" Exhibition and Sale.....
"SECRET 7" is an exciting project combining music
and art for designers, all in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust.
There is something about vinyl that transcends every
format that has followed in its path. An integral reason for this is
that it's allure and functionality allows the listener to be absorbed by
more than one of their senses.
Secret 7" is a project which aims to rekindle some of the
excitement for sleeve art in the digital era by exploring how a track
would be interpreted by an array of brilliant artists.
In April the Idea Generation gallery in Shoreditch,
London will exhibit around 700 unique seven-inch sleeves inspired by
tracks from The Cure, Florence + The Machine, Bombay Bicycle Club, CSS,
DJ Shadow, Noah & The Whale and Ben Howard. The exhibition has an
added air of mystery as no-one will know who designed each sleeve, or
which of our seven tracks is housed inside.
On the 21st April – Record Store Day – through to close
on Sunday the exhibition is yours to own. Each of the one-of-a-kind
heavyweight 7'' records will be available to take home with you for a
minimum donation to Teenage Cancer Trust of £40.
Every penny profited from the sale of these exclusive
vinyl records is going to the charity.
