Jarvis Cocker

Feature

Jarvis Cocker, an English musician and front man of the band Pulp, joined Cape Farewell's Disko Bay Expedition that departed on 25 September and returned on 6 October 2008. This journey was an exploration of place, landscape, discussion and debate with a creative crew of visuals artists, architects, comedians, playwrights, composers, engineers, film-makers and musicians working alongside two science crews, both completing research in the Arctic waters.

The journey included artists like Leslie Feist, KT Tunstall, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Lemn Sissay, Sophie Calle, and Shlomo. As one of the artistic outcomes Jarvis created the Arctic lo-fi choir from approximately 20 crew members together with Shlomo, Feist, all performing Feist’s Sea Lion Woman.
