Jeremy Deller will present a much-anticipated solo exhibition in the British Pavilion for the 55th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia from 1st June to 24th November 2013.
The Vinyl Factory are excited to announce a collaboration with Deller on the musical soundtrack to a new film work to be exhibited in the British Pavilion. The soundtrack is a composition of three classic British songs; Symphony in D Minor by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Voodoo Ray by A Guy Called Gerald and The Man Who Sold The World by David Bowie covered by the Melodians Steel Orchestra, an English/Trinidadian steel band, based in South London.
Released and produced by The Vinyl Factory, the ‘English Magic’ EP will be released on vinyl and digital on 10 June. There will also be a limited triple vinyl edition of 300 copies, hand signed and numbered by Deller with record sleeve artwork created by the artist, including a 10x10” photographic print hand tipped on the front cover.
The soundtrack was recorded at Abbey Road, in keeping with the British theme. The Melodians Steel Orchestra will be performing at both the Pavilion’s official inauguration on the 29th May and later that evening at The Vinyl Factory & British Council party on the Isla Vignole, Venice.
