Glitches, bad transmissions, cardiograms

Client: Inner Ear
Artist: Sigmatropic

Following the hybrid character of the sound the idea was to combine organic and electronic elements interpreting directly the album’s title. A classical portrait painting was distorted on a faulty scanner to give the effect of a glitchy transmission.

The same logic was used for the inner sleeve liner notes and lyrics’ columns, arranging the texts like broken data from a crashing computer. A red line was added on the CD’s lengthy insert fold in order to give the sense of a cardiogram examination.
