THROUGH THE HOURGLASS :: THE VISIONARY BEHIND THE ART

 / / Derry Maulana

 

When we were originally searching for an artist to help us idealize our vision for this album, we were torn between a few digital artists. When I found Derry on Behance,  his portfolio pieces really stuck with me personally, so I convinced the team that he was indeed an artist who could help us visualize our sonic creation, while maintaining our proprietary theme. My idea in working with visual artists, is simple; guide their content inspiration with our sonic motif. I wanted to see how the art directly perspired from the music, and the process that provided. Given only the album theme, and a playlist of previews, Derry sent us back sketches that we fell in love with. Working with Derry was a pleasure, which is why I am excited to say that we will be working together again on the next concept related to our forthcoming EP in 2018. Stay tuned, new music & art is underway.
