Hear Jarvis Cocker’s Soundtrack To His Art Exhibit

In a few weeks, Jarvis Cocker of Pulp fame will present an art exhibition for Red Bull Space Paris called 20 Golden Greats, where he’ll display 20 fictional hit records that he designed and pressed on vinyl. He spent a week in Paris recording an instrumental soundtrack for the exhibition. “I wanted a sonic landscape that really extrapolated the exhibition experience. This past week at Red Bull Studios Paris was a great experience because of the freedom we had in the way we worked,” he explained in a press release. “We came, we tried out different ideas, which we then recorded in simple fashion. It’s a real luxury to be able to just try out different things, with the allotted time and the materials at hand.” The soundtrack has been cut on vinyl, and will be available for free to visitors of the exhibition, which will run from 6/17-8/28 at 12 Mail. You can listen to the soundtrack, which is split into three segments, below.
