John Malkovich, Eric Alexandrakis & Sandro
Like A Puppet Show is a vinyl-only release slated for fall’s Record Store Day on November 27, Black Friday. Like a Puppet Show marks the first of a series of collaborations between actor/director John Malkovich, top commercial director/photographer Sandro, and producer/composer Eric Alexandrakis.
For this project, John Malkovich recited Eric Alexandrakis’ version of Plato’s Allegory of the Cave over an original piece of music, while being paired with exclusive photos of Malkovich taken by Sandro. Once Malkovich’s part was completed the group began reaching out to a variety of artists to lend their creative flair to the release.
Contributions to the project include those from OMD, Yoko Ono & Sean Lennon, Dolores O’Riordan of The Cranberries, Dweezil Zappa, Young The Giant, Efterklang, The Dandy Warhols, Ric Ocasek of The Cars, Harry Waters, Placebo & Chris Stein of Blondie.
