*a.spell* is world/jazz/electronic music group with Nadja Stoller, Jan Brönnimann and Ronan Skillen. Because all three musicians come from different parts of the music world and even from different countries, the merge inspired a unique kind of album. The latest album «The Meaning of Life» was released in March 2016. The design was created from video stills and illustrations to show a.spell’s mix of hand played instruments (accordion, clarinet, tabla…) and electronic music (keytar, loops, drum machine….).
For the first album, I photographed locations in Bern to symbolize three “worlds” by creating unique “planets” for each musician. Each planet has its own animals and creatures which I hid in each photograph. If you look closely you can find all of them, and then you will know «where the strange creatures live».
