The exhibition following the “30 / 30” contest also includes covers of albums representing genres other than popular music. Several of the selected covers illustrated albums containing classical music. One such example is the cover designed by Agnieszka Zakrzewska for the album by Jerzy Mądrawski, one of the most renowned Polish accordion players, accompanied by other excellent accordionists. “Akordeonowe impresje” is a must-have for any fan of the accordion.
Tych, którzy za taką muzyką natomiast nie przepadają, może do zainteresowania się przekonać “Suita Americana”: http://dux.pl/katalog/mp3_1193/
Two artists may be said to have dominated the “30 / 30” contest, as they each managed to submit four successful entries. One of them is Mateusz Holak whose design created for the band Happysad surprised, in the positive sense of the word, with its clarity and visual simplicity.
Tytuł płyty sugeruje refleksyjną, ale i szaleńczą zabawę, niemniej utwory na płycie są o wiele bardziej skomplikowane. Polecamy szczególnie “Smutnych ludzi”, których przesłuchać można poprzez serwis Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXahiun8jnI
The exhibition of vinyl album covers designed by Rosław Szaybo and Stanisław Zagórski in ’60s, ’70s and ’80s is on display for only 6 more days. Fifty outstanding designs showcasing the immense contribution of Polish designers into this type of art are exhibited in the ground floor exhibition room of the Municipal Gallery “Arsenał” until 24th May.
We hope that similar success stories await the designers of the younger generation who participated in the “30 / 30” contest. One of them is Wiktor Jackowski whose cover created for the album “Najas Flexilis Exequiae” by ForrestDrones was appreciated by the jury.
A tutaj fragment utworu, który usłyszeć można podczas zapoznawania się z albumem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLhPNENhpfE
The sixth cover which gained recognition of the contest jury is the design by Ioana Vreme Moser created for the jazz band from Timisoara called Exit Oz. We hope that the success of the cover will contribute to the success of the band, as their music is quite interesting. We also wish the author many successful designs in the future.
Fanom dark jazzu powinien spodobać się m.in. utwór “Marele Magician”: http://exitoz.bandcamp.com/track/marele-magician
One of the gloomiest album covers in the contest. Some may find it similar to the Punisher’s symbol, others to the murderous look of Robocop. Strong message, intriguing idea… – these words describe in brief the cover of the album entitled “Dance in Haze” by Ebola Ape. You may check whether the design by Bartosz Polak renders the atmosphere of the album by listening to a song like “Lord Boolz” by Ebola Ape and Boolz.
