Den Sorte Skole
Den Sorte Skole is a sample-based producer and composer duo based in Copenhagen. Balancing between the mainstream and avant-garde, Den Sorte Skole creates musical compositions and live performances, unfolding on turntables, samplers and effect-machines. Championing world music and independent recording artists from around the globe, their work brings otherwise unknown and forgotten musical treasury to life in a new context.
For their first full-scale album, Lektion III, we created a visual identity and designed the cover for the initial limited edition release.
Shifting elegantly between earth-shaking bass and beautiful fields of sound, Lektion III is a 90-minute original composition, seamlessly mixed together from thousands of sound fragments, spanning several decades, genres, languages and cultures.
To translate this elaborate musical expression into any kind of figurative motif would only result in an inferior representation of the monumental work. Consequently, the cover is contrarily and uncompromisingly black, rejecting all visual stimuli to allow for an uninfluenced listening experience.
