Corvo Record is a label for sound art and contemporary music that was founded in 2010 in Berlin by the graphic artist Wendelin Büchler and the artist and vocalist Alessandra Eramo. Corvo Records has established a reputation and sharpened ist profile through the release of highly acclaimed LPs, curatorial work and organizing concerts, participating in the growth of Berlin’s sound and art scene.
For Blind Score Postcards, an audiovisual premiere of compositions and their graphic notation, international artists from the Corvo Records sphere are commissioned to create a graphic notation. These scores were then sent to another artist, who is given the task of interpreting them musically. Seven compositions and their interpretations were shown at the timeless 10—Corvo Festival. It was the first time for those involved to hear their own postcard translated into sound:
Vinyl -terror & -horror
Magda Mayas & Tony Buck
Maria Iorio & Raphaël Cuomo
