Bibio released “Zen Drums/Dada Drums” as a limited edition vinyl for Record Store Day 2018. Every copy of the two track 12” has a unique hand painted sleeve.
“Zen Drums and Dada Drums are two spontaneous pieces consisting of live drums and synthesisers. I asked my friend Timothy Donaldson, who is a type designer and action calligrapher among other practices, to work with me on the artwork. He is also an admirer of Zen and Dada, so it felt like a project that was personally relevant as a collaboration. Timothy designed the artwork for this release but also drew/wrote on every individual sleeve with a large brush laden with carbon ink. As a result, each and every one of the 1000 copies has unique artwork. I visited Timothy in Cornwall to video and photograph him working on the sleeves.” Bibio
