Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Design your own album cover

This game was played some years ago on the TalkClassical board, and I noticed that I still have the covers I designed in a folder, so why not try it here as well, seeing as it is not only a musical thing, but also an artistic one.

The idea is to create an album cover for a piece or collection of music, using whatever art or photo you think is suitable (or perhaps hilariously unsuitable!)

This thread may be more suited to the Speakeasy, so mods feel free to move it there, but I post it here so everyone will see it.

To get things going, and as example of the kind of thing I mean, one of the covers in my folder:



Art: Max Beckmann, Self-portrait with Horn.

I look forward to seeing other members' creations. :-)

Re: Design your own album cover

Brian, there's no way you can top this original cover to the Dennis Brain recording of Mozart's Horn Concertos:



It looks like a poster for an old B science fiction film: "The Brain that Ate New York"

By the way... this recording is generally regarded as having been unsurpassed.

Re: Design your own album cover

I'm sure I can't surpass it for sheer psychedelicness (psychedelicity?) but I'm pretty sure I have already beaten it purely in terms of good taste.

And yes, it does remind of an old SF poster. Horn Nine from Outer Space, perhaps?

That's quite original. But perhaps you need something from the, er, blue period...

Re: Design your own album cover

Somehow that's not the landscape I envision with Beethoven's Pastoral.

I wonder if this is what you'd envision with Pergolesi's Stabat Mater:

Indeed, but who says we can't begin to make that association? I after all grew up in Africa, with Beethoven, and I assure you the maestro would have been thrilled.

I find that particularly with the storm sequence, I associate it with the tremendous summer thunderstorms we have in this area, and whenever I visit the countryside, I find myself whistling that joyful and uplifting introduction.

Not that I know a thing about Basotho villages.

Little known fact of Biblical history is that the Virgin was showing tremendous promise in an early career as heavily tattooed femme fatale before an entirely unexpected pregnancy diverted her into divinity.

Re: Design your own album cover

She does lean a bit more toward the Mary Magdalene side of the spectrum... but then I like art which challenges the status quo.
