Music-making man-machine Logistics’ third album (well, fourth if you count a digital-only album) Crash Bang Wallop! is hitting stores, shelves and record players worldwide next month, so as this blog is now somewhat alive again, here is a little bit about the process of creating this album’s arwork.
This project started in typically late-notice fashion (ah, my topsy-turvy relationship with underground music), as while the project was mentioned several weeks prior, there wasn’t a title until mid-July. This meant a fast schedule, and the project came a long way in a short time.
Here’s a little stopmotion animation idea I came up with last week. I probably could’ve done with making the clip a lot longer than 10 seconds, but it’s only an idea that could be used somewhere else in the future, and it took long enough as it was! Thus is the nature of stopmotion though I suppose!
Note: unlike my other stopmotion experiments, this one has sound on it (which is kind of the point). In case you wanted to know, the track is the classic Ram Records wobbler ‘Turbulence’ by Moving Fusion.
It came to my surprise that despite the depreciation of my blog, people did like to read it! It’s not so much that I’ve had requests to bring it back, but people occasionally comment on stuff they read on it, despite the content being years old. For that reason, I have taken the effort to migrate all my badly hand-coded stuff to this wonderful new WordPress blog, so here we are a year and a half later.
Life goes on without weblogs though, and since I last posted, I have:
Clocked up 115gb of work
for at least 21 different clients,
Had 41 physical vinyl singles, and
13 albums released with my artwork on the cover,
Created 12 fully functioning websites,
taken over 20,000 photos,
Upgraded both of my Macs,
Flown across the atlantic another two times,
Helped import Lilly to the UK,
and Started my own home
Amongst other things.
So greetings from my nice new weblog. I haven’t decided if I’ll use this seriously yet, but one thing that is for sure is if I do, it will be a lot easier to update than it used to be!
