EMERALD cover design

Behold, the cover for the upcoming EMERALD album, out 10 days from now. Design by Mike Højgaard.
I dig how Mike was able to capture the music’s thematics around colours, symmetries (inner molecular symmetry within the materials, as well as outer symmetry in their arrangement), light, shadow, transparent stones, etc., into this 3D graphic design.
The observant observer (singular? plural?) might have noticed the similarity to the cover of the Gemstone Series sheet music book that came out very recently; All compositions on the album are also found in the book.

Emerald – album on the way

Lotte Anker, tenor sax & soprano sax – Anders Banke, bass klarinet, clarinet & alto flute – Henriette Groth, clarinet & viola – Jacob Anderskov, piano – Nils Davidsen, bass & cello – Peter Bruun, drums.

Light, shadow and deep dark color combinations alternate effortlessly in the soundscape of this new studio album from Jacob Anderskov. The music is saturated with color and yet transparent; A mixture of restrained mystery and tenderness towards the unfamiliar timbres, with room for the musicians’ expressive, improvised contributions.

The album was partly supported by KODA KULTUR. Final master has been sent to the printing factory. Release: March 2023 (exact date TBA). Format: LP & digital (+ Sheet music book: The Gemstone Series – see post below).

Promotion links to final master audio can be supplied on demand for booking purposes – see contact.
