Win a copy of “Bridges”, the new project by Gerco Hiddink and Rutger Zuydervelt!

October 16, 2011

Gerco Hiddink and Rutger Zuydervelt (aka Machinefabriek) have just released “Bridges“, a beatifully crafted collaborative project with eight international musicians. Read all the ins and outs regarding the creative process here. The physical version comes in a bespoke gatefold sleeve (see pics below), and the digital version has bonus material. Like the pictures below and/or the samples you can check out here? You’re in luck: a copy of the double vinyl version is beside me as I type this… and could be yours if you answer the question at the bottom of this post correctly!

Bridges is an audiovisual project involving four pairs of improv players reacting to field recordings made at four bridges between Sinderen and Nijmegen in The Netherlands. Eight musicians were paired not to play together, but to react separately to the field recordings, which where then mixed together with the primary field recordings. The four pieces are released as a double 12″ picture disc, with the artwork printed with a zoetropic series of images of the bridges.

Gerco Hiddink: “Like music, film is time-based. Print is static. I thought that if I could find a way to translate the video into print, some element of time and movement would remain within the design… I edited dozens of small film loops per bridge, and placed frames of these in rings on vinyl, so that when the record is played, the film comes alive again in stop-motion. It’s a moving photograhic score.”

The question: which musician contributing to “Bridges” has also worked with Bon Iver, and in what project?
First correct answer in the comment below will receive a pristine copy of the 2LP. Go!
