New album cover on Facebook?

Postby javier on Mon Dec 16, 2013 6:54 pm

Could this be a new album cover on David's official Facebook page?

"live to the point of tears" - great title.

I was thinking it was just a seasonal message but maybe it is more than that. Maybe that is the book cover.

The title seems like a nicely ambiguous play on "live" as a verb and an adjective. That's why I figured an album.

The photo is also up on David's website; it's a Seasonal message....

As it indicates on the side of the image, that's a quote from the genius that was Albert Camus: "Men must live and create. Live to the point of tears."

On a more mundane level, I'm very intrigued as to what the gadget is - looks like some kind of modular synth patcher?

I stared at that image quite a long time and didn't see Camus in the corner until Blemished mentioned it. None so blind as those that will not see. I need stronger glasses.

Ah ha. It's part of ADDAC system modular synth - an ADDAC601 VC Fixed Filterbank. Lovely stuff.

Helping to keep those manaphonics flowing! :-)

I love this! Like a completely different language! I understand the synth part, and the modular part as well, but VC Fixed Filterbank? ADDAC?

I too spotted the Camus quote. it seems David is not over going over his erstwhile influences all over again ( :) ) i.e. Brilliant Trees-era existentialism.
the more I look at the photo, the more I think it would be cool to make this the cover of a live album of a night when everything went wrong :-D

Maybe this is the artwork for the kwatt live album thing? All this techno-art is very reminiscent of the early YMO records. The back covers of Technodelic & Philharmony show similar nondescript art.

Have you guys seem the new littlebits modular synth kits? kinda cool.
