PJ Harvey to Record New Album as an Art Installation
UK singer-songwriter PJ Harvey is finally set to follow up 2011's Mercury Prize-winning Let England Shake — and the recording process will be open to the public.
 
Billed as an art installation titled Recording in Progress, the exhibit will take place at London's Somerset House from January 16 to February 14.
 
It will feature a studio set-up, which visitors will be able to observe through one-way glass. Harvey will be working with producers Flood and John Parish, and will also be joined in the studio by her band and sound engineers.
 
"I want Recording in Progress to operate as if we're an exhibition in a gallery," said Harvey [via The Independent]. "I hope visitors will be able to experience the flow and energy of the recording process."
 
Somerset House released a statement in which they express the hope that each group of visitors will "experience something different, depending on what point in its development a particular song has reached and which of its elements are mixed live".
 
For those lucky enough to be in London over the next month, tickets are on sale now and available here.
