COMPLE:X is a complextro compilation album released by K@keru Records. Eight composers created original instrumental music for this album. Complextro is a genre of music which is typified by glitchy, intricate basslines and textures created by sharply cutting between various instruments in quick succession. I designed the album cover to visualize the beauty and complexity of complextro.

DESIGN

Butterfly diagrams of FFT (Fast Fourier Transform, an algorithm to analyze sound wave) provided inspiration to this graphic. Crossing lines express the complexity and also represent Kakeru (×: multiply). In addition to that, the graphic was decorated with various motifs related to music such as five-line staff and automation graph of DAW.
