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. A limited run of the projectors will be produced, and the videos will be made publicly available through an interactive website featuring a gallery of user-submitted “memories”. “1979” will be released in Summer 2014 on Friends of Friends in vinyl as well digital formats.

Words from the artist on “1979”: “There’s not a doubt in my mind that memory is our greatest gift. Our memories give us access to time, identity and dreams. I have long explored memories through stories and songs, documenting them in order to share them further. “1979” is a celebration of memory in it’s essential, shared nature.”
