Happy to reveal the final cover design of Melaine Dalibert - Infinite Ascent (elsewhere 012), to be released in early November as one of the three upcoming elsewhere piano series CDs.
The album title 'Infinite Ascent' was conceived by David Sylvian who also contributed his artwork for the album cover.
"On listening to the album for first time I felt what I’d describe, for want of better terminology, a 'cosmic expansiveness'. Vibrational waves traversing the universe, a lone satellite, released from earth’s gravitational pull, spinning infinitely into the bright darkness. I ascribed to it a somewhat solitary migration. Not despite, but because of this, I found it a profoundly moving listening experience." - David Sylvian
