Loving... Brad Ross-MacLeod's artwork for Free Floating Music
One of my favourite netlabels at the moment is Brad Ross-MacLeod's Free Floating Music. The label features some truly great moments... and has brought me some real joy with their releases from Phillip Wilkerson and Daniel Robert Lahey as well as their Christmas compilations.
One thing that I've been thinking about recently is how seriously good the artwork is on each release. Take their latest release - "Highlands"...
or "breathing may surprise".
Tange's "I Will Tell The Audient Void"...
or the 2011 Christmas compilation "All Is Calm".
Each one truly unique but wonderfully vibrant, clear and expressive. Kudos to Brad Ross-MacLeod for his efforts. His artwork is an inspiration to me... as is his netlabel and his super-cool collaborative attitude regarding the community we are both part of.
I don't think I am alone in my desire to see these graphics adorning 12" vinyl covers!
I would heartily recommend the music on Free Floating... it's my kind of ambient.
