250 copies will be pressed
Last year, Sonic Youth‘s bassist-vocalist Kim Gordon was commissioned to create music for Inversions, a ballet conceived by New York artist Nick Mauss. Now the audio is to receive a limited edition vinyl release.
As reported by Exclaim, 250 copies of ‘Music for Inversions: A Live Ballet by Nick Mauss’ are to be pressed, each of which will feature silk-screened cover art by Mauss himself. Though a release date has not been announced, you pre-order the record by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.

The performance, which premiered last October at the Frieze Art Fair in London, was choreographed by Northern Ballet’s Kenneth Tindall for five dancers and featured text by poet Juliana Huxtable. Gordon performed the music in real time.
Earlier this month, the 62-year-old collaborated with J Mascis on new song ‘Slow Boy’. The track is taken from a new compilation curated by shoe brand Converse, called ‘CONS EP Vol. 3’.
