In celebration of their 50th anniversary year, Cambridge Audio have teamed up with art and communications company Beautiful Crime to create Cambridge Audio Soundwave Sessions -a collaborative art and music event at their London HQ venue Melomania.
Cambridge Audio have pursued one simple objective since the company was established in 1968: “to produce audio equipment that faithfully creates a pure and natural sound”. The premium audio brand have selected an iconic track from their founding year as the inspiration for a new artwork, which will be revealed at the event and subsequently auctioned to raise funds for Teenage Cancer Trust.
The Beatles’ song ‘Revolution’, originally released as the b-side to ‘Hey Jude’ in 1968, provides the inspiration for a new sound wave artwork created by non-conformist Beautiful Crime artist Wildcat Will (Will Blanchard) who combines combines surreal assemblages with pop culture. His specially commissioned artwork will be auctioned to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust starting March 2nd. Guests at the event will also be treated to a live performance from Scottish musician and master of modern psychedelia, Steven Young, who will be playing new material as well as songs from his first album, Moveable Feast.
