It’s not often that a bottle of wine or two can help you to sing in tune, but our new artist’s commission manages to do just that.
New limited edition labels on bottles of Plymouth Art Centre’s House wine have been created to act as ‘tuning forks’, positioned so that the levels of wine when tapped correspond exactly with the starting note of the top 20 most requested karaoke songs in the UK, including “Dancing Queen”.
The House Red also includes “Summer Nights”, which is sure to be a favourite at out forthcoming Open Air Cinema ‘Sing-Along-a-Grease’ at Royal William Yard on 12 September.
The concept for the work titled Singing Bottle (Britain’s Top 20 Most Requested Karaoke Songs, organised by starting note) 2014 came from Low Profile, a collaboration between artists, Rachel Dobbs and Hannah Jones, currently based in Plymouth and Penzance.
Low Profile say
“We like to imagine that those enjoying a glass of wine at Plymouth Arts Centre could be tempted to sing a tune, or may find themselves accidentally having one stuck in their head”.
Kate Sparshatt, Executive Director of Plymouth Arts Centre says
“This work is part of a series that we will be commissioning to make links between the art, film and food that we offer here at Plymouth Arts Centre. The work will engage people who eat and drink in our restaurant in a fun and amusing way and will support local artists.”
