“Songs About Packaging” packaging

Randy Ludacer has unveiled the design scheme for the “Songs About Packaging” CD he will be giving away during his Saturday, September 26th performance at the Freshkills Park site.  Each package is a miniature pop-art homage to items found in his recycling bin, paying respect to the product’s original design while commenting on its disposable nature.

Randy is a package designer and a musician who has combined these two interests in a set of songs based around consumer packaging, specifically written to be performed at Freshkills Park.  Made possible by a Department of Cultural Affairs Premiere Grant from the Council for the Arts & Humanities for Staten Island, the project is a way for him to “serenade the decades of discarded packaging buried beneath.”  This is going to be a weird and fun event.

This performance is free, but space is limited.  To RSVP, email Doug at doug.elliott@parks.nyc.gov with the subject line “Randy Ludacer” or call (212) 788-8277.
