Binaural is the third and last section from my three-part Bachelor Graduation Thesis entitled Mutuo. The whole project is based upon the invention of a Brazilian Dj duo through different materials, in which I try to simulate their evolution and transmit their personalities, realities and passion for music through Graphic Design only — no use of sound.
My priority when I started creating their first full-length was depth: I wanted to explore a conceptual and dense narrative that's graphically written through the compositions and that is open to interpretation. My starting point was the idea of Tabula Rasa, theorized by Aristotle to represent that we come to this world as blank pages, wherein our lives are slowly drawn as we add memories to them. This idea helped me visualize different compositions that conceptually illustrate how our minds work. The cover illustration contains their heads as a main element to spark this narrative and adds a layer of reality to the project, considering the fact that these two people are invented.
 
Binaural é a terceira e última seção do meu Trabalho de Conclusão de Curso, dividido em três partes. O projeto consiste na invenção de uma dupla de Djs nacional chamada Mutuo através de diferentes materiais, simulando sua evolução e transmitindo suas personalidades, realidades e paixão por música usando apenas o Design Gráfico — sem uso de música.
Minha prioridade ao desenvolver seu primeiro LP foi profundidade: quis explorar uma linha narrativa mais densa e conceitual que é graficamente traçada nas composições e aberta à interpretação. Meu ponto de partida foi a ideia de Tabula Rasa, teorizada por Aristóteles para ilustrar que nossas vidas se iniciam como páginas em branco e são escritas a medida que adicionamos nossas memórias. Isso me ajudou a visualizar composições que dialogam sobre diversos aspectos da mente humana. A composição principal centraliza os rostos da Ana e do Davi para dar início a essa narrativa e adiciona uma camada de realidade ao projeto, considerando que os dois não existem.
Two different versions of the LP were developed: a regular CD (at the start of this project) and a Vinyl for collectors. I chose to craft something special with the 10" Disc and explore print and paper as language, not only as platform. I had that in mind when I created the illustrations as one continuous image, which led to a graphic material than can be unfolded into a horizontal wide poster. The bright orange surface inside of the package was complemented with some concrete poetry related to the illustrations, a strong reference to Brazil's Modernism and a nice match to eletronic music — not to mention the interesting text compositions and the chance to use the typography developed for this project, Som Sans.
