Thom Yorke produces 18 hours of new music for Australian exhibition of Radiohead artwork

Thom Yorke has produced a new soundtrack exclusively for Stanley Donwood: The Panic Office, a full-scale Australian exhibition of the long-term Radiohead collaborator’s artwork.

That’s pretty cool, right? Wait. There’s more. Across the entire 18-day exhibit, no minute is the same over the 18 days, so you can justify going more than once. 18 days of non-stop music from Yorke!

Stanley Donwood has worked with Radiohead since 1994, designing the group’s albums and all associated artwork. The exhibition will display thousands of pieces of artwork from the Radiohead albums OK Computer, Kid A, Amnesiac, Hail to the Thief, In Rainbows and The King of Limbs, some unseen and all bearing Donwood’s evocative and haunting imagery that helped to create one of the world’s most distinct brands.

The exhibition will feature his personal art including paintings, prints and drawings, and the art for Radiohead, Thom Yorke & Atoms For Peace that cover the past 25+ years.

Presented with Carriageworks, the exhibition is a journey through beauty in the subtext – understanding and giving context to the Stanley Donwood mind.
