Bedouin Soundclash Frontman Releases First Chapter in Serial Multimedia Book Project

skullandbonesCanadian musician Jay Malinowski has signed a multimedia serialized eBook deal with book deal with HarperCollins Canada.

The Bedouin Soundclash frontman’s new work is called Skull & Bones. The work is comprised of seven digital chapters published one at a a time. The first chapter is called El Ingles Goes Missing. The book includes text, drawings and original songs from his band Jay Malinowski and The Deadcoast. The tracks are embedded into the multimedia chapters.

“After finishing the recording of the album ‘Martel’ with my band The Deadcoast, I decided that I needed to walk The Camino, an 800km pilgrimage that starts in the foothills of France’s Pyrenees mountains and ends on the west coast of Spain, a coastline strangely enough called La Costa da Morte, or The Dead Coast,” Malinowski explained on his site. ”It was during those 40 days of walking alone that I began writing and roughly illustrating “Skulls & Bones” in the cafes at night and during breaks on the side of the seemingly endless path that led to the Atlantic Ocean. This was a personal labour of love.”
