Self Imposed Exile

Self Imposed Exile

Live from Steinway Hall

The album art for Self Imposed Exile’s first studio work was an intimate portrayal of the music’s origins and inspiration – Steinway Hall on 57th St. in New York City. Using the architecture of the concert hall as a backdrop for the album’s haunting sounds the art direction relies heavily on it’s influence. Ornate molding, intricate paintings, elaborate chandeliers, Steinway Hall was ripe with details waiting to be explored. The album was recorded in this space as an homage before 57th St. was sold in 2014.

Released both on limited press vinyl and three-panel CD’s; the album art was created with it’s venue solely in mind, taking the detailed interiors of the space and deconstructing them into representations of themselves. The rotunda takes center stage on the album cover with it’s crown molding presented as if one was looking straight up at the ceiling. It was important to capture the essence of the place to pay respect to a space that gave so much inspiration and opportunity to the band.
