'Other Worlds' is the debut album by Australian musician, Ragan Martinez. His concept revealed the music to be 'the soundtrack to a video game that doesn't exist'. It was a very intriguing collaboration, to work with an artist that knew exactly what he wanted. It left us with the challenge to bring his vision to life through our artistic direction.
Ragan Martinez uses ambient and distorted sounds on loop pedals, creating an ominous yet cathartic meditative release.
Taking a snippet from artist, wa sei's painting 'Mind Travellin', we were able to encapsulate the notion of time travelling through space as a representation of the ephemeral echoing guitar that emanates throughout this project.
We added finer details in the creation of the Japanese obi strip to highlight the song track listing and 'Other Worlds' title. We took this a step forward by creating individual interpretive landscapes to resemble each song from the album.
