I’ve been a longtime fan of Alex Cuervo’s projects (HEX DISPENSERS, BLACKTOP, FEAST OF SNAKES), so when he hit me up to do some design work I couldn’t have been happier to oblige.
My goal was to visually compliment his sound (which owes “a serious debt to the pioneers of late 70s horror soundtracks like John Carpenter, Italo-prog masters Goblin & the work of German pioneers Tangerine Dream”), so what we have here is something along the lines of “Omni magazine having a nightmare in 1981″.
Espectrostatic LP Cover Design
If you’re interested in reading more about the process and backstory at work here, you can find a pretty lengthy interview about my Espectrostatic cover design (alongside several other designers and albums) at the UK-based music site Drowned in Sound.

Espectrostatic – Video Work
I also took some of the 3D elements from my cover design and created an accompanying music video for the song “Consulting the Necronauts”, which you can see above. Please feel free to pretend that it’s 2 AM and that you’re sleepily watching “Night Flight”.
Below you’ll find an unused render of an early logo rough.
