A “re-imagination” of the worlds most iconic albums of past 4 decades, Beck’s partnered with the likes of Helovon, Mcbess, Laura Jackman, Kid Acne, and Si Scott which brings to life Beck’s Music Inspired Art – The 100 Cover Project.
Since an album art is the physical representation of the music that is only represented by digital waves, album art also serves as another pathway for an outlet for an artist. Using the same music as inspiration, the artists re-think the best of the decades. The project is still under way and you can check most of the art works on Beck’s official site and also on their official flickr page. They are also asking you to get involved to finish the set of a 100. Here are some of the samples side by side with their original counterparts. -COJO
