On 25 February 2015, acclaimed creative director, artist and music producer Trevor Jackson will release F O R M A T. Jackson’s first album in 14 years, F O R M A T will initially be released as a unique limited edition consisting of 12 different musical formats each containing a separate track. A collected vinyl edition and digital versions will follow shortly after, all on The Vinyl Factory.
F O R M A T is no ordinary album release - instead it charts the legacy of the physical music format, in a characteristically beautiful and uncompromising way, paying homage to physically released formats over the decades and also celebrating the artistry, design and individual experience of playing music via traditional methods.
For the limited-edition release each of the 12 tracks will be presented on a different format designed by Jackson and produced by The Vinyl Factory. Including 12", 10” and 7” vinyl, CD, Mini CD, Cassette, USB, VHS, Mini Disc, DAT, 8-track and Reel-to-Reel tape. All items will be available individually online at www.formatvf.com except the Reel-to-Reel which is only available in a special edition of the entire set.
As for the music itself – Jackson, over the years, has built up an archive of around 150 unreleased tracks. For F O R M A T he has carefully selected, re-edited and remastered tracks from various points through the last 15-year period to create a new body of work. Touching on synth and beatbox workouts, proto-house, new wave, on Italo and techno, on ambient and psychedelia, the tracks are, the same time, none of these things.
Trevor Jackson: F O R M A T will be released by The Vinyl Factory in February 2015 in 12 different limited edition formats. Vinyl and digital album versions will be released a month later.
Edited highlights of the album will be available to hear imminently, the full album not until after the exhibition, offering the public a unique chance to hear the record the same time as everyone else
An installation of F O R M A T will be exhibited at The Vinyl Factory, Soho in early 2015
