Two Suns Can't Shine Together
Art direction, design, music production
Two Suns Can't Shine Together is my first instrumental sample-based LP. The concept takes inspiration from a gospel song I heard in a documentary.
"The S.U.N. peeped up and looked at the S.O.N,
And the S.U.N. told the S.O.N.: Two suns can't shine together"
I was struck by the lyrics, spending days thinking about it and appreciating the open
interpretation they left for the listener. The concept was the perfect umbrella for around 100 beats I had previously created, but was unable to bring together with a uniform idea. I started then building the album and the design around this sentence. Splitting the music in two parts (suns) and using the two characters in the design as a reference to that.
First The Bow (03:20) / S For Stern: One Ellipse For The Eclipse (04:39) / Flat-Bottom Chined Hull (05:40) / One Or Two Seats (04:10) / Drawing Twarts Left And Right (03:59)
Gunwale Wood, The Brown Can Flood (03:30) / Because The Deck Is Red And Red Is Not Dead (06:02) / Don't Put That Yoke On Your Shoulders (03:21) / And Don't Worry About Those Fishes (02:49)
