Billie Ray Martin X Andy Warhol

Billie Ray Martin Andy Warhol

We’re big fans of both Billie Ray Martin and Andy Warhol, which is why we’re looking forward to the latest project from Berlin’s “queen of electronic soul”, Five Takes (A song about Andy). BRM is unveiling Five Takes at a very special event at the Art’otel (Warhol Hotel) Berlin, who are offering a discount room rate to anyone in town for the event. But first, a few words from the artist behind the work:

Billie Ray Martin releases this 8 panel deluxe DVD, featuring five movies inspired by Andy Warhol‘s Screen Tests and printed in colour and silver metallic. The song “On Borrowed Time” deals with Andy’s fictional confession, in which he reflects on his existence and a life he always experienced as less than real. With music by electronic producer and soul singer Waterson, who is riding high on the airwaves with his single “When You Tell Me That You Love Me”.

Why not join us to see this intriguing work revealed on Thursday 2nd August? For more details, and for a peek behind the scenes of the making of the films, join the Facebook event here.
