Tate Modern putting art-inspired music tracks online

Share

The Tate Modern invited a selection of musicians to compose pieces of music inspired by a piece of art in the museum. Each month they’ll featuer that music in Tate Modern alongside the piece, and the following month will post a slideshow and the music online at Tate Tracks.

The first track to go online is The Chemical Brothers’ musical interpretation of Jacob Epstein’s ‘The Rock Drill’. Future tracks will come from Roll Deep, Graham Coxon, Estelle, The Landscapers, The Long Blondes, Klaxons, and Union of Knives – each on their own chosen piece.

The music is exclusive and free, with each track unlocking on the first of the month following its debut in the museum.

Worth a visit to see art and music working together online, particularly if you can’t get along to the live exhibition.
