Two Photo Shoots, Both Alike In Dignity
During the shoot, I had to be sort of bound and gagged and needed to stay still for long periods of time. I have to say, it sent me to amazing places in my head. Being trussed up in Victorian gear in 92 degree heat and having cheesecloth stuck in my mouth sent me in strange directions. I began to slip outside the room, outside myself, outside the world, and soon I was seeing cells divide and atoms collide and worlds being born and dying in the blink of an eye. My ears were generating Sondheim music that I could literally hear but was not coming from outside stimulus. It. was. strange. And it felt appropriate for what was happening. I doubt you will know from seeing the images, but that's where I was...or wasn't...during the cover shoot.
Lauren also showed us the shots she had taken thus far from the previous shoot, and WOW, we are very impressed. We really can't wait to share them here. They are filled with wonder and beauty and mystery and are vaguely sinister as well. Just how we like it.
As soon as the images are delivered, we are going to get going on the next step in this journey, which is design. We've already done a lot of preliminary work on what the CD is going to look like, but the photos will probably dictate new and exciting possibilities we hadn't imagined before. David is a graphic artist and this task is one of many where his talent gets to really shine. You'll be seeing his lovely handiwork soon.
