Trevor Jackson’s – F O R M A T – exhibition

The Trevor Jackson revival is on! Yep, the designer, music producer, film maker, one time record label owner and Playgroup man is back. Last week saw the release of ‘F O R M A T’ his new album. A unique art project where each of the 12 tracks have been released across 12 formats ranging from 12″ vinyl to 8-track cartridge and reel to reel tape.

To celebrate the launch a very short exhibition was held in Soho, London. The location to be precise was the lower level of the multi-storey car park on Brewer Street.

One darkened room was set aside and featured 12 plinths, each with 2 pairs of headphones, where you could listen to each track whilst watching the format play before you. A spinning 12″ vinyl, a rotating cassette, the volume meters on an eight track or the visual patterns from iTunes and a USB. All beautifully shot on corresponding short films.

The formats were available to buy. The 12″ vinyl being the most popular, mainly because it was the most affordable. A framed reel to reel was something like £2500. I came away with nothing other then the urge to hear the whole album in full as soon as possible.

In the meantime you’ll just have to make do with re-educating yourselves on all things Trevor Jackson. Like the time he took a full page ad out in Vice to have a moan / dig at his artists. Read that and have a listen to some music from Output Recordings, his old label.

Got a light mate? Bar matches before the smoking ban.
