Beer Sound Nice: A Sound System Made From Recycled Red Stripe Bottles

November 16, 2011

Words by Jesse Serwer

Red Stripe recently contracted artist Yuri Suzuki to create a unique, 8-foot-plus-tall sound sculpture made from thousands of recycled Red Stripe beer cans, many of which were collected at this year’s Notting Hill Carnival. The project, the first in a series of “Make Something From Nothing” cultural projects that the beer brand has commissioned celebrating Jamaica’s DIY culture and music, features audio contributions from DJ Al Fingers and one of our favorite reggae singers at the moment, Gappy Ranks. The sculpture will be unveiled tonight at a launch party at the Village Underground in London. For those who can’t make it, watch this video documenting Suzuki’s creative processโ€”and Gappy singing into one of the most novel-looking microphones you can ever expect to see:
