ALBUM COVER DESIGN CONCEPT SYNOPSIS:

“It’s the dream, the passion, the success that makes the paper worthy of chasing…”
“Melien paper chase” is an album designed for those Hip Hop fans that are willing to adapt to a new style of rap music performance, DJ cross MC performed by the one artist/DJ. Hence the space theme that portrays the style and technique possessed by the artist differing from other artists.
The space theme concept was chosen for this album in order to signify the “out of this world” description to highlight the skills and technique Dee Flo posseses. This space theme concept was inspired by Kid Cudi’s two albums, “Man on the moon” and “Man on the moon II”. (image 1 and 2 below) Both of Kid Cudi’s albums had a spacey theme which was very dreamy, mysterious and can be easily identified by viewers that it is not earth, giving the idea to use space to describe the skills and difference of the artist from others. However, Kid Cudi’s two albums is based on a serious subject.
Therefore, instead of going too serious on the subject, the focus point was decided to be about hustling for money in life with a sci-fi effect which tones down the seriousness in the subject and on the same token still be able to deliver the message to the fans with a different spice. Kanye West’s album “Graduation” (image 3 – below) was another inspiring album cover art work. It also had a spacey theme, rather than using stars to outline space, Kanye used cartoon animation and a cartoon character that represents himself which inspired the use of the combined effect of animation and real images which fitted right into the foucs point that was decided upon.

The word “Melien” is a combination of the two words “Melbourne” and “alien” which describes the artist “Dee Flo’s” origin and the unique techinique he acquires and can further describe Dee Flo’s aim to introduce himself along side the space theme concept. In terms of

    Nowadays, many rap and hip-hop songs have evolved, or rather devolved, to simple beats with lyrics that encourage violence and drug use and lack a true meaning. Logic, on the other hand, is ?distinguished by [his] confidence, passion, versatility, raw lyricism, intellect, and a Frank Sinatra-like swagger? [footnoteRef:1]. Logic?s identity is evident through not only his lyrics, but also the musical composition of his songs. His style mimics the old school style of rap, and has drawn the praise of many in the hip-hop community, including stars such as Lupe Fiasco and Nas. In all, Logic's unique use of rhythm and timbre throughout his mix tape "Young Sinatra Undeniable" reveals his thoughts,…

    She examines how revolutionary the idea of the fourth dimension was to modern artists of that time because of how the existence of a fourth dimension allowed those artists to free their imaginations from the traditional constraints of illustrating only the perceivable world. Avant-Garde artist groups began to emerge, such as Cubists and suprematists, who attempted to represent this fourth dimension through their art. Although 2001: A Space Odyssey does not exactly pertain to the notion of the fourth dimension, it does mirror Henderson’s idea of science sparking a fundamental shift in artistic representation of the imagination. While early twentieth century artists were influenced by late nineteenth century theories of relativity and the fourth dimension, Kubrick’s film was influenced by the politics of the space race, occurring at the time, as well as the idea of advanced space technology of the future. 2001: A Space Odyssey is Kubrick’s way, as an artist, to try and convey something, such as space travel and computer technology, that had not exactly been seen before. This is similar to the modern artists that Henderson brings up in her essay, such as Picasso, Malevich, and Duchamp, who attempt to illustrate the notion of the fourth…

    * Jay-Z’s “Reasonable Doubt” (Released in “1996”) and Eminem’s “The Slim Shady LP” (Released in “1999”) present a difficult binary for fans of the genre. One reason is they generate totally different audiences. Both albums re-defined standards in the industry and forced fans and critics to ask: What does this mean for hip-hop as a movement? Also what does it mean for hip-hop as a business? These two men have redefined the genre as both a business and a political force in several ways. Hip-hop has expanded and diversified but it’s a people’s movement. Jay-Z’s album speaks the historical, artistic and political tradition of the genre: to the street hustlers, people in urban and ghetto America, to the “Hood”. Eminem's album, by contrast, is not to be taken seriously. Eminem revealed his fantastical sexual proclivities, his extreme drug abuse, his violent desires, and his anger towards his mother and ex-wife. These difference will draw two different types of audiences and ultimately fan bases.…

    Bataile Conceptual Art

    Black Flag for Georges Bataille is a conceptual art work that was created in 2012 by artist Skylar Fein and is now on display in the New Orleans Museum of Art. The piece is located in the right hand second floor gallery. This work is successful, in my opinion, because of the ideas the artist is bringing the viewer to question such as, the way we define human value over economical value in America. The work is a large black american flag with white stars and where there would normally be red and white stripes are black stripes with white words. The artist used an additive technique to build up the work from smaller boards or blocks glued on top of one another. Each stripe alternates between a continuous statement and blocks of advertising…

    One of the most important aspects of a television series’ popularity is the theme tune. Having a theme that is immediately recognisable to audiences can go a long way in influencing its success. Whether it simply be a melodic tune or a lyricised song it strikes a memorable chord in the collective brain of the viewer and brings back familiar memories of said television show. The mere mention of a well known theme can send fans into a frenzy and with it more people can be informed of a series’ existence making it even more popular and well known. The theme from The Big Bang Theory is perfect example of a theme being instantly recognisable. The first melodic sequence immediately reminds the listener of the show, it’s content and it’s characters.…
