Adam, the drummer from Cooler, asked me if I could make a unique piece for his band. I was very excited that he gave me a drum head to work with. Drum heads were another surface I’ve always wanted to explore and now I had the perfect opportunity to do it. I was given full freedom of the design as long at the bands name was on it. I choose to give the background a free flowing organic feel. Moths are the band’s “spirit animal”, so I added a few to blend into the background.
Cooler is a Buffalo based band, who are up and coming within the local music community. I was given a copy of one of their albums, Phantom Phuzz. When I sat down to start this project, I listened to it for inspiration. I was completely impressed with their music and the quality of the recordings. The female/male vocals and instrumental pieces were amazing. My two favorite songs that everyone should check out were “Metal Moths” and “Pave Age”.
If you live in the Buffalo area, their next gig is June 23rd at Nietzsche’s, starting at 9pm. Please check them out!!!
