‘Music + art = good,’ enlightens graphic designer and occasional artist Jamie Winder. Just one of the contributors to display their work at the next Seen and Not Heard night and exhibition, which commences end of November.
If you haven’t already guessed the theme of the exhibition, organiser Mr. Gresty reveals it is on music. Setting the brief, he says, ‘Think Music. Gramophones to crowd surfing, school choir to rock & roll, song lyrics to muddy festivals – expressing one sense with another.’
Gresty invited a group of creatives to interpret this and contribute their work, which includes printmakers Barry Goodman and Clare Halifax, Winder, illustrator Lisa Bodland Fielding, motion graphic designer Paulmyfinger, graphic design studio Thumbcrumble and not forgetting work from the legendary designer, Mr. Gresty, himself.
If this does not suffice to fulfil your creative appetite, all guests are to let Mr. Gresty know their three favourite music tracks via firstname.lastname@example.org, which will be built into a play list for the opening night.
Along with a set of music from Mikklesen – inspired by drawing on Norwegian cosmic disco, German minimal techno and electronica – it’s sure to be a jam-packed night!
Seen and Not Heard, from 7pm till Midnight on Saturday 27 November at Biddle Bros. 88 Clapton Road, Hackney, London E5. Exhibition continues till early January.
