Product Details
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.
