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).


We need your support to bring this project to life in the form of a book & vinyl box set. The exhibition will take place irrespective of the kickstarter campaign. Opening night, Saturday 9th August 2014 at Gamma Transport Division, Stockbridge, Edinburgh.
