_what
record sleeve for the sheffield-based band, 65daysofstatic.
_how
this is one of a series of covers 65daysofstatic designed themselves as a part of their ongoing wreckage systems project. this particular EP cover they asked if we could apply our own treatment to. we printed out the artwork they'd made and got to work on it with a sponge, some water and a metal surface.

_what
record sleeve for the portugal-based musician, alessandro cortini.
_how
scuro chiaro is the 2nd album by alessandro cortini to be released on mute records. just as with his previous record, volume massimo, the photography you see here is by emilie elizabeth.

it was up to us to find a way to talk about the concept of "chiaro scuro" with emilie's photos and any other elements we saw fit. the result is a piece that talks not just about light and shadow, but also the nature, shape and form of sound.

_what
film poster for the short film, night music.
_how
director lukas huffman asked us to create a poster for his new short film, night music. the film tells the story, in brief, of john and alan lomax and their early 20th century recordings of american folk music. in this case the film follows the father and son as they gain access to a penitentiary to record african-american prisoner's songs.

after much discussion about various ways to approach the poster, we settled on this hand drawn and painted approach. the poster tries to speak simultaneously to the idea of a 1930s live "disc recording" and what was ultimately the uncredited, unpaid exploitation of black prisoners by white people.
