Nette Minidoku der Vinylfactory mit Motiondesigner Weirdcore und Packaging Designer David Mason über ihre Zusammenarbeit mit Aphex Twin für dessen neue Collapse EP und das großartige T69 Collapse-Musikvideo.
A short documentary exploring how Weridcore and Daniel Mason set about creating the visual information for Aphex Twin's Collapse EP - from mind-melting videos to foil-engraved record sleeves.
For new EP Collapse, it fell to long-time friend and collaborator Weirdcore to begin piecing together a visual narrative from the fragments provided. “A sense of collapsing” was the starting point, as Weirdcore set about trying to create a video that drew inspiration from Designers Republic-era Warp sleeves, Cornish cottages, Blade Runner, and a series of imagined android hallucinations.
For Daniel Mason, tasked with researching and delivering the limited edition record sleeve, the instructions were even more diffuse. He talks about being given a “series of co-ordinates or part of an equation”. In the case of Collapse, this began with a hunt for an obsolete foil-engraving technique used on ’60s electronic avant garde label Prospective 21e Siècle, and ended in the workshop of one Handy Bendy Wendy.
