Chris Russell, who is a self-taught ambient artist, has an impressive handful of releases to his name – just take a peek at his page on Bandcamp. Along with a collaboration with contemporary Phillip Wilkerson, Destiny is Chris’ third solo release on Spotted Peccary, and is filled with rich, shimmering textures that make for a rewarding listen for those looking to escape, find a meditative space or simply to plug in for a deep listen.
After designing artwork for his previous releases on Spotted Peccary, I was honored to work with Chris again on Destiny to create art for both physical CD and digital download release, including CD wallet, CD, insert booklet, an iTunes digital booklet and all social media channels.
…Russell explores slow-flowing spaces with an artistic and cinematic flair, painting a world where delicate veils of sound are frozen in slow-motion breezes, where seething pools of shimmering electrons glisten in sonic starlight, and where distant drones and faraway textures approach and recede into mysterious swirling mists.
