Benjamin Wynn a.k.a. Deru is an Emmy Award-winning composer, sound designer and producer. As Deru, Wynn has released three albums on Mush Records, Merck Records, and Neo Ouija respectively, as well as remixes and tracks for compilations on labels like Hometapes, Ghostly International, Mille Plateaux, and a ballet score for Wayne McGregor and the Paris Opera Ballet. In 2014, Deru ushered in the next phase of his journey, as he partnered with Friends of Friends for 1979, his most extraordinary project to date.1979 is a concept album and sculptural object, featuring nine songs by Deru accompanied by nine short films by video artist Anthony Ciannamea, that are housed in a customized handheld video projector. The subject matter is nostalgic and emotive, focusing on common origins and shared human experiences. The limited run of projectors sold out immediately, but the videos will be made publicly available through an interactive website featuring a gallery of user-submitted memories. Vinyl copies of the album sold out very quickly as well, which is why 1979 is finally getting the repress treatment after two years out of print. LPs include original inserts and download cards and will be available for purchase immediately.Key Points: Highly-coveted record back in stock after 2 years out of print! Extended Creators Project feature on 1979, live show and Obverse Box projector package: The 1979 live A/V show has been performed at Mutek Mexico, Decibel Festival, Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival, California Academy of Sciences, Lincoln Hall, The Regent, Bric House, Gray Area Art & Technology Theater, Sonos Studios and more. 1979 reviewed by Resident Advisor, Pop Matters,ISO50, Tiny Mix Tapes, Noisey, LA Weekly and more.
