Bent Ear were asked by Richard Oliver to create some bizarre and abstract sound design/music for the Art Car installation at the Creative Allies : The Creative Jungle End of Year Party 2019. The sound design was created solely with an Elektron Model:Samples machine. No computer !
The Installation video can be seen here.
The installation is a homage to the BMW art cars of the 1970s and 80s where famous artists created abstract works directly onto the surface of the car. Projected imagery immerses the car with representations of art itself as well as notions of sustainability, power, movement, shape, form,presence, anticipation, release & control.
The 1985 BMW 635 CSi is, sculpturally &mechanically, a real piece of work and ultimately this installation is a celebration of that.
