~~~ Grosser Lärm ~~~

A while back I collaborated with the collective Polish record label and publishing house GROSSER LÄRM on a box set which included 2 tapes and a set of five postcards. The recordings include a reading of Kafka's short story "Grosser Lärm" (engl.: "Big Noise") and several experimental musical interpretations of it. You can find out more about the Warsaw-based artists and their current projects on their website and have a listen to their tracks here.

Here are three postcard designs I did for the box set booklet. I made 5 different illustrations depicting 5 different ideas of what noise could look like or how it can be perceived as. I deliberately chose a minimal colour palette based on the slightly oppressive nature of the short story.
