Nick Mulvey, Sharp’s Brewery & Tangible Format have teamed up to create first 10-inch vinyl record made from recycled plastic, found along the coastline of Cornwall, England. Sales of the record will ne donated to Surfers Against Sewage, a UK based organization working to save Brithish coastlines from pollution.
Nick Mulvey: “I’ve always loved the wildness of the Cornish coast and it feeds something deep in me every time I’m there. My music is about knowing who – or what – we are, right at the core. Aliveness itself, conscious. These times of urgent global crisis are demanding we re-examine ourselves and the world and raise ourselves to match the Earth, this wonder-organism from which we are not, and never have been, separate.”
Sharp’s Brewery’s James Nicholls: “Cornish culture is built around the ocean – whether that’s seafood, surfing or even our own Atlantic Ale. Last year, we helped the ocean enter the charts, under Keynvor – which means ‘Ocean’ in the Cornish language. I’m excited to say that today we’re really turning the tables on the music industry by releasing ‘In the Anthropocene’, with Nick Mulvey – by upcycling single-use plastic found on our beaches and turning it into playable ‘ocean vinyl.’”
Hugo Tagholm, CEO of Surfers Against Sewage: “We are excited to be partnering with Sharp’s Brewery again to raise vital funds to protect our coastlines from plastic pollution and other environmental hazards. Keynvor, as a musical artist, and the new ‘ocean vinyl’, which uses plastic pollution and turns it into something positive, is a powerful way to help us raise money and continue to spread our message.”
