ECM cover art

    1. I found your post very interesting – and would encourage anyone who chances on this page to follow the link. The core of your piece is about

      ‘the link between music and the perception of landscape – the way music territorializes space for us, creating affective movements and openings within us towards certain places and away from others. Album cover art only became a real art form in the 1960s and matured in the 1970s and 1980s. Its ability to conjure up a mental geography, however, is nowhere more in evidence than on Manfred Eicher’s Munich-based ECM label.’

      I was intrigued, too, by your reference to Michael Tucker’s book Dreaming with Open Eyes. I’d like to read that, I thought. It’s totally unavailable in the UK. You can find it on – but UK residents aren’t allowed to buy from there! I eventually managed to find a copy on Abe Books, coming from Florida. Funny when the guy apparently works at Sussex University!

      The Some Landscapes post is also worth a look, as is the Jazzcorner discussion thread on ECM cover art.

  1. Hey, great post. Great blog. It is clean and to the point. I have bookmarked it for future reading. You know it is rare to find quality content on these things…
