Andrea Chimenti / Antonio Contiero
2009 Antonio Contiero
Limited to 8 vinyl discs, this is a hard and maybe impossible to get vinyl edition of Andrea and David’s duet.
This vinyl 7 inch edition of Andrea Chimenti and David Sylvian’s – Ti Ho Aspettato concerns an art work made by Antonio Contiero; an extraordinary artist who asked Andrea to use some songs in order to realize some book/disc as unique pieces in strictly limited editions in vinyl (2 or 3 copies for each song).
Antonio Contiero explained that the pieces have been produced by hand through lathe cut. The earnings of the few unique pieces sold on the internet will be used for the building of a school in Tibet.
The book is printed on hand made paper and there’s a lathe cut inside a special box on red marocchino leather, printed wood and photographs printed on Japanese Hodomura paper. Antonio has to send a copy to David with a short explanation of the project.
Original text used on eBay for raising money for the school in Tibet:
