Listen to a preview of 'Universal Everything & You' by Simon Pyke, to be released on deluxe vinyl

02/10/2013
To coincide with the 'Universal Everything & You - Drawing in Motion' exhibition running at the Science Museum's Media Space gallery, a 20-minute piece created by Simon Pyke (Freeform) will be released on deluxe vinyl.

Built upon the foundations of the soundtrack to the exhibition, the release consists of an 180g vinyl pressing designed by Matt Pyke (of Universal Everything), screen-printed on one side, and including one of four available prints featuring images from the exhibition. Listen to an edited preview below.

'Universal Everything & You' is available exclusively from Bleep and the Media Space store.

The exhibition 'Universal Everything & You - Drawing In Motion' is comprised of two parts: 1000 Hands and Presence.

1000 Hands is created through contributions from the public through a smart phone app. In the physical space, it takes the form of a circular projection, with screens showing individual user-generated artworks.

Presence is a circular four-screen video installation showing moving abstract forms revealing a human presence. These life-size abstract forms have been created by motion-captured performances of dancers from Benjamin Millepied’s LA Dance Project. The projections show the dancers in a growing number of digital ‘costumes’, for example, glowing feathers or elaborate sculptural trails.

Simon Pyke’s evolving soundtrack amplifies and recedes over time in relation to the works moving in unison on screen, view a taster of the exhibition below. For more information on the exhibition, which runs until February 2014, head to the Science Museum website.

Warp has a long relationship with Simon Pyke and Matt Pyke, having first released Simon’s music as Freeform (Prowl, WAP73, 1996), for which Matt designed the sleeve. Through this connection, Matt was introduced to Warp and subsequently the Designers Republic for whom he went on to work. During this time and since launching Universal Everything, he has designed many Warp record sleeves and the Warp.net and original Bleep.com websites.
