Unfolding Music

This thesis project explores methods of visually representing music. The print deliverables were inspired by the format of CD folios and album cover art.

Four CD Booklets were produced, for four different songs: MOVE by Saint Motel, Clocks by Coldplay, Gilded Lily by Cults, and Lakeshore Drive by Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah.

All of the booklets feature a variety of ways to represent music: including collage, illustration, cover art, and typography/hand-lettering. The experience of opening and unfolding

the booklets also adds a sense of immersion, similar to music. It allows the viewer to unfold the layers of art as if they are layers of a song, with the most captivating art as the final layer.

A Closer Look

The artwork for the CD Booklet about Clocks, by Coldplay, took 30+ hours. While the artwork for the other booklets was illustrated and/or produced digitally, the artwork for this booklet was hand-stippled with pen and is highly detailed.
