2. For music lovers
For something a little outside the box, As part of the V&A projects of LDF18, musician and technology innovator Beatie Wolfe will present a series of album innovations that explore what design for music can mean in the digital age.
Beatie Wolfe: The Art of Music in the Digital Age
V&A Museum, SW7 2RL | 15-23 September 2018 |10am – 5:45pm daily, 10pm close on Friday
A collaboration with Nokia Bell Labs and Design I/O there will be 3D vinyl for phones; an intelligent album deck of cards; and a musical jacket designed by Mr Fish, the tailor who dressed David Bowie, made from BeatWoven fabric woven with Wolfe’s music.
Wolfe’s latest design is the Raw Space Chamber, which will allow visitors to enter an anechoic chamber and immerse themselves in a ceremonial listening experience, while live AR animations bring the album’s artwork and lyrics to life in real-time – I’m intrigued!
