La Finestra is a cultural association in Barcelona. They asked me to make an album cover for a limited edition CD compilation of all the artists that played there during 2013. One of the distinguished feature of the venue is a big china Dalmatian that stares out from the street windows, (pictured in the CD) so I decided it must be the dog itself to be the protagonist. Simple as that.
Amanda Jayne (third from left) is an American singer songwriter, an inspired and original composer author of two albums, Swoon (Whatabout Music, 2008) and Lunatics in Bloom (Whatabout Music, 2013).
Here are some posters, album art and video I made through the years.
Piccola Orchestra Gagarin is a improvisation trio that melts the skills of three musicians of very different musical backgrounds who somehow found a way to squeeze improvisation, baroque, jazz and Sardinian folklore into a new musical adventure. Well equipped with sense of humor and down-to-earth attitude, P.O.G. plays with cheap iconography from the 60’s space expeditions mixed with old school Barcelona’s favorite fish taverns. I added some spy-style fake reports and an additional external point of view of a tavern client at coffee time, as if they were the target of an American spy studying their dossier after dinner.

Digital cover art for Catalan drummer Oriol Roca. In 2009 this amazing musician recorded a solo album using as a stage and source of improvisation a Bronze age monument, the Tomb of the Giants in Sardinia. I used a plain photograph of the monument and transferred it on a cork texture, a classic Sardinian craft material.
