Studio members Jonathan Barnbrook and Anıl Aykan formed the band Fragile Self releasing their debut self-titled album in 2019 on vinyl, CD, and a 500-page book. One of the project’s main focus is to explore the almost mystical relationship between music and graphics. The CD version of the album has a unique package which features 3 postcards, a booklet of original photography and a unique package which folds out to be a poster or stands up on its own. A uniquely creative work.
The duo published their debut project in various forms, each with a custom design and cover, made to fit the format. The album was released through a record company created for this release: “The Deperson Society”. In all formats, the artwork combines custom portraits of Jonathan and Anil, imaginatively combined with found photographs and reproductions of twentieth-century artworks, printed in dim yet atmospheric shades of gray.
