“Trójkąt warszawski” is concept rap album telling a story of three characters wandering around Warsaw. Story is filled with alcohol, broken hearts and general despair.
The name ‘Trójkąt warszawski’ is a reference to Bermuda Triangle. Words which are visible on the walls are taken from the original lyrics and form a small triangle on the front.
Face and hands are taken from painting done by Piotr Dudek. His artwork is also used on CD.
On the back however, I decided to insert small easter egg which so far hasn’t been noticed by no one.
Each line taken from the lyrics is forming different block, and all together are creating map of actual, existing streets in Warsaw. Chosen streets are also significant - tracklist is hovering over one of many mentioned warsaw pubs. Title of the song ‘Mięso’ which is set in that particular pub is exactly on the top of it.
I also made few others ‘location based’ easter eggs, but I ain’t gonna tell ya where they are. This shit is gonna stay secret.
Inside of the cover is filled with map of Warsaw. Warsaw is pretty cool place btw, visit us some time. Not during winter though. Oh and check if there wont be any national parades or something.
Im not 100% satisfied with the final outcome of the front and back of this CD case.
The idea of using words on the walls felt right to me, but because of the extremely short period of time I had for finishing this project, I had to use slightly different methods I planned on using. I wanted the letters to look like hand-drawn but due to limited time I had to repack this idea. I got used to the final look of them but the vision I had at the beginning haunts me in my nightmares.
Oh and also the font that felt somehow most suiting for this was the one I was making fun of for months for being overused by whole graphic and branding community.
R.I.P. my sanity.
Since we were selfpublishing this album, only way of promotion was via facebook and our website. Alongside with my brother we created simple website where you to this day can either buy physical copy or download album in mp3 format for free.
I am kind of proud of one feature used in the lyrics subpage. Tracklist is looking like the list of warsaws subway stations. Whats even more cool is the fact, that my brother animated this section so that while changing track the lyrics are moving, imitating the motion of a subway train. Pic and gif related.
Gif time, buckle up.
Give it a listen if you understand polish. You propably don't.
For english speaking listeners, check out his previous mixtape https://soundcloud.com/tacohemingway/sets/young-hems its pretty dope. Below you can have a little taste of his style. Its a song published under old nickname 'FV' on MF Doom track.
I also made visualisations synced with the audio that are being used during the concerts.
