We take 7 tracks from 7 of the best-known musicians around and press each one 100 times to 7” vinyl. We then invite creatives from around the world to interpret the tracks in their own style for every 7”. 700 sleeves are exhibited and then sold for £50 apiece. You don't know who created the sleeve, or even which song it's for, until you have parted with your cash - the secret lies within.
Nordoff Robbins work with people with a range of challenges such as autism, dementia, depression and physical and learning disabilities. The therapy they provide helps many to communicate where they have struggled to do so previously. The results can have a profound impact on individuals, their families and all those around them. They carry out their work in their own music therapy centres, in schools, community centres, hospitals and care homes. They also train music therapists through their own Masters degree programme. We are delighted to support Nordoff Robbins in 2015.
The spectacular neo-classical building in the heart of London will host our biggest show yet, as we expand the number of days you can view the collection of masterpieces before they scatter to their new homes. During the exhibition we'll be hosting a series of special events. Details about these events and our sale day will be released in March.
Thousands of people sent us their interpretations of our tracks via an open call for submissions. Our favourites will join a host of the World’s greatest creative talent who took up our invite to design a sleeve for a good cause.
The full list of contributors and our online gallery will appear on our site shortly before the exhibition opens. In the meantime, follow our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram where we are profiling the many wonderful artists involved.
