The Art of the 7″ : Secret 7 Auction
“This year we’re celebrating the seventh and final edition of Secret 7”. By the end of this show we’ll have made 4,900 one-of-a-kind records for 49 different tracks since 2012. What started as a side hustle has taken us on some journey.
We’re pressing 100x copies of the following tracks to 7” –
Aretha Franklin – One Step Ahead
Bob Dylan – Blind Willie McTell
Foo Fighters – This Is A Call
The Internet – Come Over
Koffee – Toast
Miles Davis – Miles Runs The Voodoo Down
Vampire Weekend – Harmony Hall
Every single one of them will have unique artwork created for it.
From 14 October – 1 November we’ll exhibit all the artwork at NOW Gallery on Greenwich Peninsula in London, all 700 records will be sold via auction on the final day.
The secret is that all the artworks are anonymous. If you’re looking for a particular record you’ll have to study the sleeves and guess correctly, you’ll have a 1 in 7 chance at that. If you’re looking for a particular artwork contributor then your odds are a bit longer.will be sold via auction on the final day and all the profits will go to help refugees.”
