Falling grand piano cd cover by KVirtanen Falling grand piano cd cover by KVirtanen
My good friend Mikko has a single (double actually : ) coming out soon and this is the design I made for him. The name of the single translates roughly as "I heard about you". He has played nearly all the instruments on the cd by himself and also done the mixing and mastering too! :omfg:

I think the end result is amazing, check him out at his MySpace site: [link]

although i think the piano would be a little higher if it was to hit him

Thanks a lot! =D yeah, I've recently "come to terms" with the position of the piano.

(I actually had quite a discussion about this a few comments below)

I actually like it more when it doesn't necessarily seem to hit him dead-on. Imagine his feelings in the next picture: with glazed eyes, in the brink of a heart attack, a totaled grand piano lying shattered just before his feet, but he got away even without a splinter of wood on him.

I like the music :) The piano falling just scares me because I can guess how you did it, but the real question is, did the piano really fell?

KVirtanen Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2008  Professional Photographer
hehe, well.. to others I've told that we just dropped the piano from the roof a few times to get the shot, but that would have been really risky for the artist. So, I edited the man in the photo in post-process.

Oh, his name Pohjola reminds me of the Kalevala tales which I just read a few months ago.

Why are you acting so pissed off? Calm down. :confused: Why did you think my concept was to kill the man in the first place? It doesn't say the piano is going to fall ON the man anywhere. It's just your own interpretation. And that would be a cliché anyways. Suppose there's an other frame in addition to this one where the man is standing before the broken grand piano, relieved that it didn't hit him.

But why for all this abra cadabra whis the falling piano if it doesn't fall on the man? there is a man and there is a piano they must meet each ather.it will be some kind a doom the desteney the evil fate.

In my opinion a piano that doesn't fall on a man is as almost a better story than one where the piano does fall on the man. The latter incident is familiar from cartoons and slapstick comedy. However, I like it when when an artwork derives from common stereotypes and raises questions: "IS the piano going to fall on the man?"

Better yet: "Why ISN'T the piano going to fall on the man?"

.. leaving the interpretation to the viewer creates suspension and makes the artwork deeper. The artists intentions don't always have to be crystal clear, you see? ;)
