Darren Sylvester: Compass Point - Art Collector

20 February 2012 | Multimedia artist and musician Darren Sylvester has released a book called Compass Point, looking at the history of Compass Point Studios in the Bahamas.

The studios are well-known in the music world. Musicians such as Grace Jones, AC/DC, the Talking Heads and Roxy Music all recorded albums there.

Sylvester travelled there after hearing rumours of the studio’s impending closure.

His book documents the studio’s history, an exercise aimed at both myth making and myth destroying.

Compass Point, which has been produced by M.33, will be launched at 6pm on 7 March 2012 at the Centre for Contemporary Photography in Melbourne.
