Still chasing the mythology of Nothing
Why do you long to leave everything behind?
To sink beneath, or retreat between the seams

Nothing grows inside
A will expired, the pulse retired
Spending all your time...
Spending your whole life...

Longing for nothing more
A wish to leave silently
To disappear into a dream
Erased—to cease completely

When emptiness takes hold
You fall so low
When the warmth of life goes cold
Fall so low

"The idea that God is an oversized white male with a flowing beard, who sits in the sky and tallies the fall of every sparrow is ludicrous. But if by 'God,' one means the set of physical laws that govern the universe, then clearly there is such a God. This God is emotionally unsatisfying... it does not make much sense to pray to the law of gravity."

Poster Drafts

One of my courses this semester is based around the concept of curating a fictional music festival, featuring music of a specific (assigned) genre. Our responsibility is to provide the visual support for this festival. This will encompass a variety of printed material, as well as motion/film work, and a website.

After a couple weeks of research, and class presentations which were designed to familiarize our classmates with our musical genres, we're now in the first phases of our visual design. In the course of a week, we've produced 27 concept images. An initial round of 15, two refinements from that batch, and an additional 10. Next step is to pick the two most successful concepts, and create 10 variations on each.

Here are the designs that I'm most satisfied with as of yesterday. My genre is shoegaze, and my visual approach attempts to capture the dreaminess, mysteriousness and multi-layered nature of the genre. The phrases on the posters are a bit dadaist; pulled from stream of consciousness and chance pairings of words that I created from a pool of 100 words that I felt were apropos to the genre. A little silly at times, but it provides a bit of a foundation to build on.

A grey landscape, all hues subdued
Eternal search, endless pursuit
And still the remedy eludes
So you will walk forever on through the gloom

Arrival, the new Skin Like Iron record in the works. Another day or two in the studio and it'll be ready to go to press.

Happy New Year

2011 is off to a great start. I'm finally enjoying the opportunity to unwind after two solid months of 80+ hour work/school weeks. In the spirit of the New Year, here are some calendars I'm admiring:
