SPECTRAL MORNINGS AT THE FESTIVAL / 2008

Spectral Mornings at the Grand Rapids Festival for the Arts music performance poster

In the summer of 2008, Spectral Mornings performed on stage during the Grand Rapids Festival for the Arts. We had just released a single called Spring Rain, so the poster reflected the melancholy atmospherics of our new-found synth-pop aesthetic. The poster also focuses on an illustration of our music equipment, in a form of mythologizing or fetishizing the hardware itself, particularly appropriate for an electronic band at the turn of the century. This idea of illustrating equipment returned in the poster for the Spectral Mornings performance at Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2010, in which every piece of equipment from the band's history is included.
