Curators: Michel van Dartel and Freek Lomme. Managing director: Freek Lomme. Graphic design: Remco van Bladel. Photography exhibition: Ingmar Swalue. As a group, The Rose Frustrates has a lot in common with Onomatopee.
Both have their roots in the lo-fi culture of the 90s: in which artists and musicians, by way of home-made analogue cut-and-paste projects, encouraged one another to realise strange, peculiar and original results. But is that culture still alive? In this project, The Rose Frustrates and Onomatopee challenged musicians and artist to once again start cutting and pasting in their living rooms.
The end result is a tribute to lo-fi culture. The individual tracks of the song were given to Modder Bardt van der Dennen and Tom Verbruggen and Bram Stadhouders with the request to each come up with a new version. The musicians had complete freedom to play with the source material, and to remix it in any way they liked. Subsequently, three designers were approached to produce a visual interpretation of each version of the song. Erik Vermeulen, who designed all previous releases of the Rose Frustrates, worked on artwork for the original version of the song, while Marijn van Kreij and Jowan van Barneveld developed artworks inspired by the respective remix versions by Modder and Come On, Lets Go - Various - The Legends Of Rock N Roll Stadthouders.
The bundled project has been presented at Onomatopee on February 14,in an appropriate lo-fi setting.
