JP Reid, leader della band scozzese Sucioperro, ha da poco pubblicato quello che può essere considerato il suo primo lavoro solista a nome Invisibles. Victory Hymns è disponibile tramite il sito bandcamp.
Invisibles is an international collective conceived by JP Reid of Sucioperro and Marmaduke Duke. It is based on the idea that everyone is an artist and that there is magic to be found in the everyday. Victory Hymns was written, performed, produced and mixed by JP and features contributions from fans from around the world. Work on the project began at the start of September 2011 and the album was... completed and ready for release within three months.
Friends and followers were asked to send ambient sound recordings, music, photographs and art to JP via the internet, the only stipulation being that it was their own original work. Contributions ranged from sound clips of daily life to art drawn by children to fully-orchestrated and professionally recorded tracks.
Taking these submissions JP crafted songs and soundscapes around them and used the visual contributions to form the artwork, so that everyone who had contributed became both inspiration and part of the work itself. The result is Victory Hymns, a truly original and innovative album.
Victory Hymns is released on 9th December 2011 and will be available to purchase as a download through Bandcamp at invisiblesx.bandcamp.com. A limited edition CD is planned for early 2012.
JP Reid has had previous commercial success as co-performer, co-writer and producer with Marmaduke Duke on the album Duke Pandemonium and the single Rubber Lover (14th Floor Records), both of which achieved a top 20 position in the UK singles and album charts.
