S O L O J A Z Z 1 9 9 8 - AESTHETIC DELUXE by The-H-Person
S O L O J A Z Z 1 9 9 8 - AESTHETIC DELUXE
AESTHETIC DELUXE is the first full-length album by American vaporwave artist S O L O J A Z Z 1 9 9 8, and a close friend of mine! Although I may have heard the term before, I didn't know what vaporwave was until she explained it to me. As someone always open to trying new things, I of course jumped at the opportunity to design cover art for AESTHETIC DELUXE.
I had never attempted a e s t h e t i c s before, so this piece may or may not conform to what is generally considered a e s t h e t i c. The design is inspired by my love of old Apple hardware (back when we Mac users were hated for being weird instead of hated for being mainstream,) as well as Stereolab. The centerpiece of the design is the folder icon from Macintosh System 7. At the heart is the OS X folder icon which was the standard from 10.0 to 10.4. The iconic 'Happy Mac' smiles down at the folders. A blank CRT screen is blended ofter the image, to make it look like it's being displayed on a very old computer monitor.

Lizz R - Garden of Shadows by The-H-Person
Lizz R - Garden of Shadows
The third full-length Lizz album I've compiled, and likely the last. Listening to these songs was a hugely emotional experience. While the previous two I compiled have a mix of happy and sad songs, with some blurred lines here and there, all the tracks here are low key and melancholy. Several of the songs, those that were originally in Japanese, were translated to English by Lizz herself. She also plays guitar and piano on several tracks.

I spent a long time trying to figure out how I wanted the artwork to look. I originally envisioned a rich, vast landscape, possibly created from CGI. I decided that was too complicated, and settled for something far more modest. I took this picture back in 2011, in the foundation of a building near the Quabbin Reservoir. The overall design was inspired both by Virginia Astley's From Gardens Where We Feel Secure album and Chris Squire's Fish Out of Water album.

Track Listing (all of which can be downloaded for free on Lizz's Youtube Channel in WAV format)
  1. Everything Stays
  2. Answers
  3. His Theme
  4. Ikanaide
  5. Song of Healing
  6. Sally's Song
  7. Meltdown
  8. Four Seasons
  9. Come Little Children
  10. Miraikei Answer

Psycho featuring Zebra - Tori No Uta by The-H-Person
Psycho featuring Zebra - Tori No Uta
Cover art I did for one of my favorite utaite covers; a symphonic metal rendition of Tori no Uta from Air! The music was performed by Psycho with vocals by Zebra. It's quite a stunning track, the aggressive guitar and drums backed by heartbreakingly beautiful strings and piano. Zebra's performance is full of emotion, and he often sounds like he's burst into tears.

I designed the text with progressive rock in mind. It took some time before I was actually satisfied.
The backing image is a composite of two photos taken by me probably a year apart.

Mirai Nikki - Kveikur (Sigur Ros) by The-H-Person
Mirai Nikki - Kveikur (Sigur Ros)
Here's one from the vaults. I've never seen Mirai Nikki, but Kveikur by Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Ros is one of my favorite albums. I though the cover was alarmingly compatible with Yuno Gasai's memetic "yandere face."

Have a listen to one of my favorite tracks from Kveikur, Iskjaki!

Wow. I can't believe how long it's been since I've written one of these! I guess I finally ran out of clever and witty remarks. I feel I'm living in the moment far more than ever before. A side effect of my fast-approaching 20s? Perhaps! Regardless, I'll keep this section brief and go right into the "news."
  • The Mighty Atom are back in the studio! - Well, to say "back" in the studio is inaccurate, as The Mighty Atom lives in it, but there is plenty of new material on the way. In fact, the bands' first new since 2014 is available for download. Upcoming releases include another single, a new studio album, and side projects.
  • I have a new computer. - I recently sent my Macbook Pro in for repairs, leaving me with my reliable, but out-of-date white Macbook. However, Mom remembered we had a relatively new, barely-used Mac mini! We got it hooked up to a big art tablet, a Logitech keyboard (made for a Windows!) and a trusty Logitech mouse. The resulting setup has proven satisfying. Now, with the Pro up and running again, I have three functioning computers! Due to licensing, I cannot run the Adobe creative suite with which create all my album covers, which would have been nice to do on such a large screen. However I can run Logic like never before, making this a worthy successor to the Pro as my primary music computer!
  • Youtaite remix/graphic design work slowing down. - It has by no means ceased completely, but I have been dedicating more time to other more immediate projects. I really want to get some professional design gigs, and Harry can't run The Mighty Atom on his own, much less mix their albums!
  • Chris Squire: 1948-2015. - Many who follow me have probably noticed that I hold the progressive rock band Yes in high regard. In many ways, this was due to their long-serving bassist Chris Squire. From the bands' 1969 eponymous debut, to 2014's Heaven and Earth, he was the only member of the band to appear on every album. I myself discovered him in 2008 through his 1975 solo album "Fish Out Of Water," the cover of which I even made a K-On! based parody of. Since then, he was hugely influential to me as bassist and a musician. In May, I was sad to learn that he had been diagnosed with acute erythroid leukemia, and would be taking leave from Yes. Less than six weeks later, one of my greatest musical heroes was dead. Cancer is a killer, but a human being's legacy can live on for millennia! As a gesture of respect and gratitude, The Mighty Atom's next single, Milky, is to feature a passage which I composed in dedication to Mr. Squire.
  • Everybody can get married now! - Something truly wonderful happened in America, and I'm not just talking about Wilco performing at the Solid Sound festival! I have lots of friends who will be positively affected by this historic decision made by the Supreme Court. As with all things related to the universal concept of love, I have a special song by a special band picked which I dedicate to everyone. Let There be Love!
  • I will resume uploading artwork. - Save for a couple parodies and one original, I've barely put up any art this year! But rest assured that with all the new The Mighty Atom material, there is lots to come!

Thanks to all who follow me and like what I do!
