Moon Safari 10th Anniversary Edition

This edition is a small cake, specially made to celebrate the ten years of the launch of its first production, Moon Safari. I say it is a biscuit, because they really tried to deliver a special edition that not only includes the original disc, but also another CD with the same number of songs as that first attempt, in addition to a DVD of one hour made neither more nor less than by Mike Mills (Thumbsucker and Paper Boys).

Also, the hardcover edition brings a small notebook of about 12 pages, which tells the story of this milestone already, of French music through the eyes (or ears) of radio DJ Nic Harcourt (KCRW LA) ; In addition to reviewing his discography of singles while retaining the same line of art that at some point they decided to apply to this album ten years ago. So,

With several versions of Kelly Watch the Stars and Sexy Boy, two of the best-known hits by all, wins the live version of Kelly Watch the Stars (Live @ BBC 1998); Rockera to die, I try much more intense and vibrant, shows that they were not only fans of the lethargic mood of Gainsbourg. 

They also include J´Ai Dormi Sous l´Eau, a live reinterpretation in which synthesizers inevitably trap your ears while you can also pay attention to them by executing those wonderful arrangements for which they are so well known. About Sexy Boy, I think the decision to close with the Sex Kino Mix version is a total success. They take it out of context by lowering the tempo considerably and turning it into a really sexy song to end up atmosphericizing either your room or your head while the record ends.

The workshop will seek, through a general review of the most representative in the field of graphic experimentation in the field of design, provide students with the necessary references to expand their creative horizons. Reason and intuition will be used to conceptualize a specific message (image-text relationship) and the search for resources will be practiced for the creation of an accurate graphic. 

On a practical level, the workshop focuses on non-digital expression processes (illustration, drawing, painting, photography, clipping, collage, etc.) until a unique and effective result is applied to the poster or flyer. The objective is to extol the analogous processes with respect to the digital ones in order to develop personalized and consistent proposals moving away from the generalized and therefore predictable aesthetic.
