Kraak Gallery, Saturday 17th May 2014
The theme for our third art exhibition is Artwork inspired by Audio, so before we could create any visuals we needed some sounds!
In January we asked our social media followers and a range of musicians to supply tracks for this project, and it’s safe to say we have been overwhelmed by the standard supplied. The 25 chosen submissions range from field recordings to polished dance floor fillers by unknown musicians and signed artists from across the globe. Tracks from signed musicians include Indigo, Werkha, Ruane Maurice, Luke Leadbelly and Denis Jones.
The tracks have been randomly distributed to 25 different visual artists with a simple brief. To create a visual response to the music. The artists we have chosen for this project come from all types of visual disciplines including Photography, Illustration, Street Artists and Videographers. These include Mary Stark, Hassan Trossain (Super Crafts), Mark Jermyn, Tank Petrol, Dan Birkbeck and Michael Holland.
For a full list of contributors see the table at the bottom of this page.
