Rarely has the existence and work of a painter been so imbued and influenced by music.ANDY lived IN and THROUGH music.Eclectic, he appreciated the popular music of his time as much as the great composers and performers of the Italian Opera.A visitor to the Factory, leaving the “brouhaha” of New York streets, would suddenly discover a mind-blowing musical atmosphere: the radio broadcasting the hits of the time (DONOVAN, BOBBY VEE, IKE AND TINA TURNER), rock & roll but also genuine pop music and “street music” (found thanks to JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT), while the Master, miraculously disconnected from this tumult, worked by feasting on CALLAS’ albums.It was a surprising and eclectic playlist.Very early on, ANDY got into the world of music records. During his life, he designed many album covers: classical ones at his beginning (for RCA), then crazier with time (for the ROLLING STONES). He completed this cycle in a masterful way with the covers to the soundtrack of FASSBINDER’s QUERELLE. He also got involved in record production with the VELVET UNDERGROUND. Though the VELVET UNDERGROUND album was not a success when it released, today the album is considered an iconic masterpiece, even beyond the banana on its cover.ANDY didn’t pursue this direction depressed with the haunting ego questions inherent in any musical group.We are especially struck by his loyal friendships with musicians who we find throughout this album (LOU REED, MICK JAGGER). His friendly feelings were often expressed in a Polaroid session that he generously offered to translated into a portrait.Several of his muses, his «superstars», were also accomplished musicians such as DEBBIE HARRY and ULTRA VIOLET.In conclusion, from this journey into ANDY’s musical universe emerges the coherence of his musical tastes with his pictorial production, which was not burdened with any prejudices and approached countless shores with strength.We can’t help but think of KARL LAGERFELD too. Both of them were passionate about the artistic manifestations of their contemporaries, both jealous of their immutable characters and both, each in their own field, were persevering smugglers, almost magically integrating the pure essence of the society in which they live into their respective creations.TRACKLISTSide 1Sunday Morning The Velvet Underground                            Venus in Furs The Velvet UndergroundChelsea Girls Nico            These Days Nico                           Heart of Glass Blondie                             Sweet and Low Debbie Harry                              Drive The Cars                                             Walk on the Wild Side Lou Reed                            Like a Rolling Stone Bob Dylan                               Sister Morphine The Rolling Stones Open House Lou Reed & John Cale Cool Mac Daddy Ultra Violet Tribute to NJP Ryuichi Sakamoto Side 2River Deep Mountain High Ike & Tina Turner Sunshine Superman Donovan Take Good Care of My Baby Bobby Vee Nowhere To Run [Single Version] Martha & The Vandellas Shout [Parts 1 & 2] The Isley Brothers      I Saw Linda Yesterday Dickey Lee Petrushka: Tableau IV - Fête populaire de la semaine grasse Ernest Ansermet                Mass in C Major, K.317 "Krönungsmesse": VI Sanctus Igor Markévitch La Traviata, Act III: Addio del passato Maria Callas Die Zauberflöte, K. 620, Act II: Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen Rita Streich Quatuor pour la fin du Temps: V.
