Soul Music

Time to turn my head and reveal a little more of the left side of my profile. As a designer I've had the pleasure of working with TV and film composer
Steven Faux on his musical journey through the vivid landscape of Psalms 1-40. The process has involved creating a visual identity and CD digi-pack for his recently released 'album'. The music will be premiered live in Bath on November 27th and 28th at St. Michael's Church, Broad Street. For the digi-pack design the intention was to create a broadly urban and filmic feel that reflected the emotional journey from light to dark and back again. The heavy industrial bridge reminds me of a line from 'La Casa de Bernarda Alba' by Lorca which talks of oppressive heat as 'the sun falls like lead'. It's weightiness tangible. But, a burst of light beyond the bridge is the draw of eternal hope.
