This one is the fourth album I’ve designed for Neil, aka Audio Obscura, this one is a compliation album of Neil’s live performances over the last five years.
He lives on a farm in Norfolk which happens to have an amazing disused greenhouse in a field behind the building complex. It’s a huge space that’s full of flowers, bees and broken glass. So the idea was to capture a live set and experiment with the footage.
So using a couple of vintage digital cameras, and my iPad (using the app Mavis - which is great for experimenting with exposure and focus on the fly). I took three takes of the set from four angles simultaneously and spliced them together in Premiere.
So I took my time to follow the flow of the music which becomes pretty spacey as it goes on, so I carefully overlaid close ups, tracking shots of the space, static long shots and some free vintage burn effects to create an evolving, cosmic, psychedelic influenced piece.
For the album cover, which is a digital release, I’ve tried to create the illusion of a physical vinyl format, with a shiny cellophane wrap and sticker, just for fun.
