Mandarine [Vor Und Nach]
Translating music into imagery
For a never-to-be-executed industrial noise band project, we created an album cover that is a visual representation of the music. Noisy, little anchor points, minimal yet complex.
The images were conceived by beaming a pre-made composition in a dark room filled with panels. The composition is a chaotic overlap of electric schematics of different machines that were used to create the soundscapes.
Eventually the images were screen printed by hand in white on black cardboard.
The panels broke the composition into less recognizable chunks, as reference to the music. The artists were placed in the pictures, sometimes even hardly recognizable as human, becoming part of the whole.
The composition was made available as an enclosed foldable poster.
