“Golden Memoria” is very much inspired by alternative music. With influences from old and new bands like Coldplay, R.E.M., Nirvana, and Young the Giant, the playlist consists of perfect songs for a car ride. Jesse Ledoux is a major artist that was the inspiration for the art style. The use of dark colors with other worldly objects and shapes match perfectly with the vibe of this playlist. When naming this album, the city where I grew up was brought to mind. Driving down to the pier at the golden hour of the day, with these songs blaring from the car seemed to be a lovely memory: a Golden Memoria.
Watercolor, pen and ink, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Indesign all played a part in the creation of this album cover. As all of these elements worked together, a fictional world was created in which creatures appear from walls with unique textures.
Music has played an immense role in my life, ever since I started learning piano at age five. I’ve learned that the most impactful music tells a story that takes you back to your own memories. I have used this specific playlist to tell a story through this whimsical art style.
