The second disk in Bruce Levingston's Night trilogy
was just released today, entitled Night Break
. We've had the pleasure of working closely with Bruce and photographer Tony Notarberardino to create the cover designs for the series, starting with the first release, Heart Shadow
. (The art for the final album in the trilogy, Still Sound
, just went to the label yesterday).
Our approach to the trilogy has been to present a cohesive series through consistent use of portraits of Bruce on the roof of the Chelsea Hotel at twilight, while varying the tone of each to reflect Bruce's conceptual approach to the curation of that album. With Night Break
, the luminous intensity of sunset evokes the dramatic shift in mood that happens as day turns to night, reflecting the shift between the light and dark of the human soul that Bruce explores within the music.
