Sound in Print is the brainchild of DJ A La Fu. Teaming up musicians and producers from his VaVa Records roster with a selection of hand picked artists the project is a perfect example of worlds colliding. Art x Music / Music x Print = Sound in Print!
The first Sound in Print release comes from A La Fu and long time collaborator Remi Rough. "I'll Drive You Pray" is an interesting listen with a darker soundscape made up from many layers, the opposite of the E.P.s artwork which features some fine line and abstract work by Rough. You can check out lead track "Boom for Real" on the VaVa youtube channel along with a special edit of "No Fun in Funding" which takes on a dreamier quality when paired up with the visuals of Might Mention. Sound in Print is a multifaceted approach to not just music but art. Music, print, video and technology collide in this project, individually strong, combined they each take it to the next level.
This first in the series has sold out but you can download the music via all the usual sources, Bleep etc. Sound in Print 2 is in the works and see's a collaboration between the Predatory Bird and Andy Murphy which should be dropping next month. You can also await the conclusion of A La Fu's twitter project which at present I can't make head nor tail of!
