Packaging for Joanna MacGregor’s recording of Lou Harrison’s Piano Concerto.

Following the attention received by the first three Sound Circus releases (featured elsewhere here), Joanna MacGregor had signed a distribution deal, meaning releases would now be sold through major retailers and had to be packaged more conventionally.

Lou Harrison is a twentieth century American composer, and this piece as described to me by Joanna, was like a journey through the wide open spaces of Harrison’s home in the western US.

I had photos of my own road trips around the US. We sifted through them, selecting a mix of motels, gas stations and sparse landscapes to conjure a pictorial journey.
