Rewire – Art x Audio – Exhibition & Kickstarter

For 60+ years art has adorned the sleeves of records, a visual expression of what’s inside, but these guys are about to Rewire that relationship.

An international line up of visual artists have created works which are now being interpreted sonically by audio artists. Effectively reversing the common record model where the artist creates an image to capture the mood of the music.

The visual works come from a curated line up of abstract urban artists. The audio artists have been selected from the vein of experimental electronic music.

The project will culminate in a multimedia exhibition, book and vinyl box set. Curated by Rob Swain (Gamma Proforma) and Andrea Parker (Touchin Bass / Aperture).

Elph Print Competition

Featured in issue 15, Elph is a Scottish illustrator with a penchant for quirky designs and perceptive artistic commentaries on those everyday characters we see around our cities. Next week he’ll be gracing London with his presence for a show at XOYO in collaboration with Gamma Proforma entitled ‘Fly Girls’. In conjunction with a collection of his visual artistry he will also be presenting his own sound works, which stem from his paintings and transcribing patterns and strokes to midi signals.

In line with this ‘Dual Channels’ show Gamma Proforma have kindly offered VNA readers the chance to win an Elph print from the show, to the value of £180. To win all you have to do is answer the question – ‘Which city is Elph from?’ and email your answer to ro@verynearlyalmost.com with the subject ELPH COMP.
