Creative Review have now profiled a one-off collaborative project by Stanley Picker Fellows Andy Holden and Daniel Eatock with the band Ice, Sea, Dead People. A 7″ picture disc for the band’s double a-side single You Could be a Model/Ultra Silence, the strictly limited edition was created by participants at a live event held at the Stanley Picker Gallery earlier in the year and released on Holden’s label Lost Toys Records.
The unusual event saw Ice, Sea, Dead People playing the two tracks live ten times in succession, the audience invited to draw with felt-tip pens onto white paper discs rotating on turntables set up around the Gallery. Following instructions devised by Eatock and Holden, the participants made circular drawings for exactly the length of each song: track one a single line with a single colour; track two multiple colours and multiple lines. The paper discs were then pressed into clear vinyl, with each face of each disc entirely unique.
A video of the event was created by Kingston University BA Film making students Aris Maleas, Vasia Ntoulia and Vincent Descourtieux.
