Latest Visionaire to feature Sonic contributions
September 2, 2007
Tri-annual art/culture/fashion �magazine� Visionaire will feature on its 53rd issue contributions from Kim, Lee and Thurston among others. The contributions will amount to over 100 minutes worth of previously unreleased audio (don�t count on all of these to be �songs�). The images on the picture discs have been designed by noteworthy record sleeve designers, including Peter Saville, Raymond Pettibon and Robert Longo. This limited edition issue will be released this December and the full package will include five records, an acrylic dome case, a booklet and two CDs backing all of the audio content and a battery-operated toy truck that drives along and play the records.
Sonic Youth, initially comprising of guitarist / vocalists Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo, guitarist / bassist / vocalist Kim Gordon and drummer Richard Edson, were formed in New York City in 1981. A product of the No-Wave music scene of the late 1970s, the group had their roots in abrasive, experimental music, with Moore and Ranaldo having previously worked with the experimental composer Glenn Branca. The band were joined in 1985 by drummer Steve Shelley, and have now recorded 14 albums together, as well as many side and solo projects. Their work has been consistently challenging and innovative, and they are widely regarded as one of the most intriguing and influential bands of their time.
