Pan Tone

Earlier this year I was approached by the German musician Haushcka to create an image for his forthcoming album 'Pan Tone'. It was Released last month by Berlin record label Sonic Pieces: a label which focuses on releasing handmade and limited edition CDs and EPs.

The album is a musical collaboration between Haushcka, an experimental pianist and Hildur Guðnadóttir an Icelandic cellist, and was originally recorded when the duo performed in 2010 as part of Arctic Circle - Bubbly Blue and Green festival at Kings Place in London.

Each composition is named after a different Pantone colour, each a different colour of the sea, and so the design of the EP and illustration follow in this theme. I produced an illustration for the inlay using only two of the Pantone colours from the album, plus black. The image is inspired by the Leviathan sea monster myth.

There is a limited number of the EP and CDs, each embossed and numbered, hand bound and beautifully designed by Sonic Pieces.
