Bach: Piano Transcriptions & Trio Sonatas

"Piano Transcriptions" is my first in the series. It's a compilation from my friend Ali, so it simply had a Bach portrait until now. I decided to replace the mediocre "Trio Sonatas" to match. I substituted stylized piano with stylized organ pipes.

Beethoven: Trios

The original is pretty uninspired. Given the recordings were in the late 1920s, I took some cues from Futurism for two variants.

Prince Bootlegs and Rarities

These are covers for a few bootlegs and rarities from my Prince collection. Crystal Ball and Dream Factory are unreleased albums from the late 80s. The Truth is an "acoustic" album bundled as a bonus disc with the box set Crystal Ball (not the same as unreleased album). Crystal Ball features a lovely microscopic image of crystals. The Truth is a riff off a underwhelming unofficial cover.

Ives: Central Park in the Dark

This is an orphan with the Symphonies broken out. I found a lovely turn of the century of Central Park (probably not in the dark).

Stravinsky: Rite of Spring

The recording is from the mid 1980s, so the art could use some updating. I did play around with a variant featuring a Patrick Nagel illustration to go full 80s (think Duran Duran's Rio), but alas it's a proprietary image.

Takemitsu: Music of Takemitsu

I've had this CD since the late 90s and always hated the art. I did two variants with different woodblock prints.
