Artist: Icarus
Title: Carnivalesque
Label: Not Applicable
Year: 2005
Designer: Ollie Brown, Sam Britton
Type of music: Improvised
Notes: This might look hand done with a magic marker, but it’s all printed. The choice of an ambient natural sounds CD booklet for defacing is a particular pleasure. The outer wrapper emphasises the appropriation and co-opts the listener into the process by forcing him/her to cut through it to gain access to the CD. A great example of anti design to place alongside Tortoise’s winningly nonchalant TNT CDR cover.

My review of this CD.

After corresponding with Isambard Khroustaliov aka Sam Britton about this release, it turns out each cover was in fact unique, not printed. Here are a selection of the other covers. I like the whole thing even more now. Check out the label’s excellent sampler NON010.

  1. I am really loving the theme/design of your site.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?
    A small number of my blog readers have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but
    looks great in Chrome. Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?

  2. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang
    of it! cheap flights 2CSYEon

  4. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    Nevertheless think of if you added some great photos or videos to give
    your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could undeniably be one of the
    most beneficial in its niche. Amazing blog!
