In 2008 Darren Sylvester was commissioned by Queensland’s Gallery of Modern Art to produce an album to feature in their exhibition Contemporary Australia: Optimism.

A special edition cherry red vinyl LP and black vinyl LP are now available to purchase from CCP Shop.  Editions are limited.

“Sylvester’s intention to engage with his audience also finds an outlet in his life as a musician; he is a one-man band, composing, playing and mixing his own music, using a guitar, a drum machine and a computer. Love and relationships figure prominently in the lyrics of his nostalgic, ‘plasticky’ rock/pop songs.” Angela Goddard, ‘Darren Sylvester: Close to You’, Contemporary Australia: Optimism catalogue, Queensland Art Gallery, 2008, p. 215
