I was commissioned by Zeitghost Productions to create a spirit board for The Parlour Trick that would allow the voices beyond the veil to communicate in both the English language and through rudimentary Western musical notation. This design was then used to manufacture a series of limited edition, pressed wood and laser-cut tabletop spirit boards. Each one has been lovingly hand-crafted by duo member Meredith Yayanos and offered up as a very limited edition reward option for backing The Parlour Trick project's Kickstarter fundraiser. The finished boards are incredible; all of the delicate imagery you see above has been inked and burned and stained into the wood in subtle shades of brown, red, black, teak.
This video is a simple moving collage of my original board design, recorded as I created it. The music playing in the video is The Parlour Trick's "Half Sick of Shadows", which was composed by duo member Dan Cantrell, with string arrangements by Mer. It's now available on their full-length album "A Blessed Unrest" as a digital download. Luxurious vinyl and CDs editions will soon be available as well.
Meredith and I are now offering a limited edition series of fine art giclees of this original artwork. Please follow the links below for print information, to listen to more of The Parlour Trick's haunting, otherworldly chamber music project and to see more of my own artwork.
