Piers Faccini collaboration

posted in Photos & work news | Music & Movies  at 8.29 AM from Mr Cup Creative Studio . Arles / France listening Thomas Dybdahl

I like the word collaboration: the act of working with others on a joint project. Unfortunately it has a darker meaning in our history but I like it anyway ... I would gave my own definition : pooling everyone's talents to get a result that we can not get alone.

This is what happens with Piers Faccini. I am a graphic designer, yet I've never worked on graphics projects with Piers since he is already working with Uncle O. So Piers put me out of my comfort zone by asking me to take pictures of him and objects that he produces for his label Beating Drums. So my collaboration to his creative work consists in images to sublimate his objects such as his new book / record: a collection of poems with an instrumental music CD that accompanies the discovery of words ...

Piers is currently recording a new album, and we shared a few hours in his studio to turn his work intro pictures. The result is a series of photos that Piers to present on his site dedicated to the creating process for this new albums that will came out in a few months.

From Piers post : "There’s one little still life he took that day that really caught my eye. Resting on top of the piano, you can see my Neapolitan frame drum and to the right, an old mandolin I found in Portobello market more than twenty years ago, behind which there’s a photocopy of a C12th Sicilian musician playing a ribab. As the eye is lead left to right and out of the photo, you can see a piece of A4 paper with the chord structure for a song on the new album called “Judith” and my old American auto-harp from the 20’s. Even though I’m not in the frame, It’s as a true a portrait of this album and the working process that I could hope for."

Movie posters

posted in Music & Movies  at 8.08 PM from Home . Arles / France
Movie posters via wwwmr-cup.com
It's been a long time since I have published movie posters. Here is a very small selection of the latest posters with interesting design and especially outside the usual standards and codes. If a movie poster can be a dream to work on for a graphic designer, film industry has more than binding principles! For example, do a search in google images "trajan movie posters" and you will see the number of film use the Trajan, it's impressive, from Star Wars to Titanic...
After publishing posts about it on facebook, I was referred to the colossal and fun working Christophe Courtois. I mention it after these posters slection, not all are official but they are inspiring !

- more than 300 in the facebook folder
- a lot of posters in the archives here, here and there
- a more updated selection in my pinterest folder here
Getting back to the work of Christophe Courtois, he made posters compilations ordering by their codes and common points :

the posters "heroes back"

Piers Faccini Dawn Lanes Desert songs EP via www.mr-cup.com
 
I had the privilege, again to have the new Piers Faccini project in hands (and hears) before the release date... I took it to a walk in the beautifull streets of ‪Arles‬... you should have seen this old lady looking at me putting this 12" in front of blue doors...

This EP is a 5 songs un duet with Dawn Landes and it is perfect for a cold friday... The ‪vinyl‬ is available on Beating Drum online shop shop.beatingdrumrecords.com, with the first 100 copies hand painted and signed by Piers.

 

And as I am on vinyl and Beating Drum, the vinyl of the month at Vinylbuyersclub is the great first album of Jenny Lysander
