Dinos makes sweet (electronic) music

The album cover designed by Dinos Chapman

Is there no end to the talents of the artistic duo that is the Chapman brothers? News reaches us that sibling Dinos Chapman is due to release a new album in February next year. “Consisting of 13 tracks of electronic ‘Schlampige Musik’, Luftbobler is the result of a decade of experimenting with sound,” says a colourful press statement. A rather bored Dinos, adds the press blurb, has been tinkering away in the basement of his east London home: the result is a record inspired by the “willful experimentation of Stockhausen and impish playfulness of Squarepusher, but sounds like none of them”. Tracks include “Pizza man”, “Cool operator” and “Sun lounge”. But it’s not all about the music; Dinos has designed the album cover, depicting a zombie-esque figure looming over a grave. An accompanying, site-specific, audio-visual installation of Luftbobler will take place at The Vinyl Factory in Soho, London, from 27 February 2013.
