CDR… Music of Tomorrow – featuring Robert Owens Live!
Thursday 7th October 2010, 7-11pm
CDR and its music community will be responding to forthcoming Whitechapel Gallery exhibition ‘This is Tomorrow’ (first shown in 1956), where a mix of artists, architects, theorists and writers worked together to create an installation in a defined pavillon space, and in doing so launched Pop Art in the UK and set a precedent for future exhibition design. This new exhibition of graphics, installation photographs and texts from the original exhibition will tell the story of the collaborative, forward thinking exhibition that rocked the art world over 50 years ago but is still influential today.
The founding ideas behind ‘This is Tomorrow’ was to create a platform where ideas are cultivated and expressed within the exhibition space. burntprogress curates and promotes events across London and internationally – their flagship night being CDR which is a cultural movement dedicated to the development of a global music community. CDR is committed to communicating and exchanging new ideas in both music and the arts.
This special CDR event will embrace the ideas and thought processes that have driven ‘This is Tomorrow’ by calling for music submissions inspired by the exhibition. These submissions will be curated by CDR’s Tony Nwachukwu and played at the event, which will be held in the gallery’s Café/bar and Gallery 3. ‘Music of Tomorrow’ will also feature DJ sets from the CDR family and a special PA by vintage classic Robert Owens, whom will be creating and performing bespoke tracks with the CDR network – not to be missed.
Gallery 3 will be transformed into a bedroom studio installation which visitors can drop into and create some beats, with the help of the resident producer, on the spot. This is an incredible opportunity to get insight into the world of making music first hand, with some of the industry’s finest.
Music of Tomorrow. The future of music starts here.
