"THE ART OF MUSIC IN THE DIGITAL AGE: A SERIES OF WORLD-FIRST DESIGNS" BY BEATIE WOLFE
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. These will include the world’s first "anti-stream" from the quietest room on earth, in collaboration with Nokia Bell Labs and Design I/O; a 3D vinyl for the phone; an intelligent album deck of cards; and a musical jacket designed by Mr Fish, the tailor who dressed Bowie, made from 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
DATES: September 15th TO 23rd, 2018
(running through London Design Festival)
LOCATION: The Prince Consort's Gallery, the V&A Museum, London, UK
Wolfe's Featured Designs...
Singer Songwriter & Innovator
Beatie Wolfe is an Anglo-American singer songwriter with a raw, acoustic, indie rock sound. An innovator as much as a musician, Wolfe was named by WIRED Magazine as one of "12 folk changing the world this year," musician Beatie Wolfe is at the forefront of pioneering new formats for music, which reunite tangibility, storytelling & ceremony to the album in this digital age. In this vein, Wolfe has created a series of world-first designs that bridge the tangible and digital, which include: a 3D vinyl for the iPhone; an intelligent album deck of cards; a Musical Jacket - designed by the tailor who dressed Bowie, Jagger and Hendrix from fabric woven with Wolfe’s music; the world's first live 360 AR stream - broadcast from the quietest room on earth, and most recently a space beam from the Big Bang Horn with some Nobel prize winning help
Beatie Wolfe is the definition of a 21st century artist and perhaps the only musician to have her album's art exhibited in London's V&A Museum, address the scientists at NASA and VPs of Apple on innovation and have the American Alzheimer's Association adopt the findings from her Power of Music & Dementia study
