Sound in vision
I mention this without comment. Today's Observer Music Monthly Magazine has a feature about photographer, Cambridge Jones. He took a series of portraits of famous people and asked them to choose a favourite piece of music. These photographs are to be displayed at the Proud Gallery with a tiny Muji CD player fitted at the back. Visitors can use a blue tooth hands free headset to listen to each track as they admire the photographs. For his portrait Tony Blair chose 'Crossroad Blues' by Robert Johnson. This is a song about a man who has sold his soul to the devil and who goes to the crossroads where he gets down on his knees and asks for mercy.
