Singer/songwriter Beck launched a special exhibition of his sheet music on Thursday (21Feb13) in honour of his innovative paper-only album.

The Loser hitmaker released his latest record, 2012's Song Reader, only in sheet format, with the album package comprising of 108 pages with individual full-colour booklets and instructions for each song.

An exhibition featuring the original artwork from the release, as well as a recording studio where visitors can lay down their own versions of the songs, has been created in Los Angeles, and Beck was on hand to launch the facility on Thursday.

Actor/musician John C. Reilly, Tenacious D star Kyle Gass, model Agyness Deyn and her actor husband Giovanni Ribisi were at the event, where Beck hosted a question and answer session.

During the talk, he said of the unique project, "I had no expectations, I thought at least it would be a beautiful book to look at."
