Sound and Vision: Dinos Chapman’s Debut Album, Luftbobler

L’enfant terrible of the art world, and one half of the famous Chapman brothers, Dinos Chapman has turned his attention to music, releasing an album with industrial and horror-movie influences.

Alongside his younger brother Jake, the brothers have created a slew of installations for some of the most renowned art spaces in the world since the 1990’s, such as Gagosian Gallery in New York and the White Cube in London. The duo are renowned for their often unsettling and humorous aesthetic, which has filtered through into Dinos debut electronic album, entitled Luftbobler.

You can listen to (and watch the short video for) the track Alltid above, which references industrial music pioneers Throbbing Gristle.

“I made it (the video) using iMovie,” explained Dinos in a recent interview with Nowness. “Everyone thinks it’s a thermal camera, but it’s just me pushing up the dials on the scale. It’s a film of my daughter playing in the waves.”

For those wanting a little taster of more tracks from Luftbobler, The Vinyl Factory will be hosting a “site-specific, audio-visual” installation in their Soho gallery, comprising 8, short films alongside Dinos’ “throbbing electronic soundtrack”. The exhibition opens tomorrow (Feb 28th), and will run until March 3, 2013. – Samantha Fox
