In conjunction with David Lynch, HEXA which consists of Room40 label boss Lawrence English and Xiu Xiu's Jamie Stewart have performed at a Lynch retrospective last year in Brisbane, Australia's Gallery of Modern Art. The soundtrack set to a portion of the exhibition titled 'Factory Photographs' will be pressed to vinyl.
As reported on FACT, the music “is a work that maps the terrain of Lynch’s photographs, and more broadly, the idea of industrial music in a post-industrial age,” writes José Da Silva, who commissioned HEXA for the exhibition, in the soundtrack liner notes. “Lawrence English and Jamie Stewart use Lynch’s photographs as both a literal and symbolic point of departure, building compositions that are attuned to the spectral histories contained within them.”
Factory Photographs will be available from 4th November on Room40.
