Farrow a design agency in UK, created this ultra sleek box set for the band, Pet Shop Boys. Strong concept, simple and meaningful. All the stripes represent a CD spine from a previous release. Two CDs full of tracks and b-sides. Always great to see strong design concepts that relate to the band & music. Hopefully fans.
Came upon today a great classical music nocturne…which took me by surprise. From the Russian Romanticism movement. It made me go back in time and then discovered something new…
”..Romantic music attempted to increase emotional expression and power to describe deeper truths or human feelings, while preserving but in many cases extending the formal structures from the classical period, in others, creating new forms that were deemed better suited to the new subject matter. The subject matter in the new music was now not only purely abstract, but also frequently drawn from other art-form sources such as literature, or history (historical figures) or nature itself.”
“The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself." - Alan Alda”—
