In case you missed the memo, Cooler Lumpur is back for its fifth edition this week. From tomorrow till this Sunday, join in the festival of ideas and catch a series of thought-provoking workshops, presentations, film screenings and panel discussions at Publika.

 

Returning with the festival is re:cover, an initiative by TBWA\KL where classic album covers are given a contemporary reinterpretation. Supported by The Recording Industry Association of Malaysia (RIM), this project explores how music transcends time through artistic interpretations. While last year saw iconic international records undergo a creative makeover, this year will see 12 classic local albums reimagined by 12 designers. The designers onboard re:cover this year include Driv Loo, Ellie See, NS Foon, Olivia Ariferiani and Aida Sa'ad.

 

Here's a sneak peak at some of the reimagined album art:

Think the album art will be great for display in your room or music corner at home? All re:cover art will actually be up for auction, with proceeds going to local musicians. You can place your bid on location at White Box or online at www.tbwa.com.my/re-cover from 19 August to 3 September 2017.

 

Re:cover will be on display at White Box, Publika. For more information on the Cooler Lumpur festival, visit the website.
