Visual IdentityA quick reminder for you: the British Music Experience (BME) has a treat in store for music fans and lovers of rock and pop iconography. This Thursday (April 7th), the internationally renowned graphic designers Roger Dean and Storm Thorgerson come together to discuss their careers and the work which has shaped the visual identity of bands such Pink Floyd, Yes, and Asia. For one night only, these two giants of album cover art are coming together to talk about their work, their lives with rock's aristocracy, and the stories behind the iconic sleeves that broke the mould and revolutionized the model for future album covers, as well as inspiring successive generations of graphic designers and music fans. Should be a fascinating not to be missed!

The BME is a permanent, high-tech, interactive music exhibition which has opened within the world's most popular music venue, The O2 in London. Thursday's discussion is part of a series of intimate events running until April 2011 exploring the iconic imagery of rock and pop music from the perspective of the artists who created it. Guests will have a rare opportunity to listen to and question the photographers and graphic designers who have shaped the visual landscape of music.

Tickets for the event are £8.50, and are still available via the British Music Experience website. The event will take place from 7.30pm to 9pm; the museum will be open exclusively for attendees prior to the event. Entry is included in the ticket price (usual entry price is £10).
