AboutâAlmost There' is a new project by Joe Simpson that combines painting and music. Joe has collaborated with twelve bands and solo-artists to create a series of paintings that has an original soundtrack. Each painting has a song written especially for it, to be listened to whilst viewing the piece. The paintings are to be exhibited with headphones beside each piece, providing a platform to simultaneously listen to the song and view the painting. The twelve paintings show scenes from one characters journey, as he leaves the city to find redemption on the open road. The musicians and bands involved include some of the most exciting emerging talent in Britain today, including: The Miserable Rich, New Cassettes, The Voluntary Butler Scheme and Jose Vanders.
