The Dance Age, an EP by The Muddy Basin Ramblers
泥灘地浪人-跳舞時代

The new EP of Muddy basin Ramblers Called “The Dance Age” in a cover song of 1933 an early Taiwan local popular music production. The EP is a tribute to the Taiwanese music scene during 1930’s and it production of the time when 78 RPM vinyl record was first introduced. The design is trying to capture to the spirit of early Taiwanese popular music, the swing dance culture and its historic atmosphere. The structure, the folding, the die cut window, the layout, the label, The sleeve… trying to create a nostalgic illusion of a golden age of 78 rpm records.

泥灘地浪人推出新作《跳舞時代》,該歌曲原為1933年發行的78轉 (rpm) 黑膠唱片,由鄧雨賢作曲、純純主唱。泥灘地浪人改編原曲風格、融入Swing節奏,遙遙映照1930年代台灣與美國當時的音樂文化。 始於視覺發想前端,先就30年代的歷史唱片進行研究,體會當年時空背景與印刷設計條件下的美感表達,設計思考的核心是圍繞在如何回應那台灣本土流行音樂崛起的年代、那迷人的跳舞文化風潮與那歷史氛圍的的時代精神。我們想再造一個經驗:一個第一眼即可辨別的異於當今之美感體驗;梳整了尺寸、結構、造型、唱片標籤、歌詞本事、顏色、紙張材質、排版美感、字體選擇、插畫、甚至到印刷表現,重回樸實而簡陋的單色牛皮紙封印刷,再現30年代懷舊風情並對78轉 (rpm) 黑膠唱片獻上真誠敬意。 一張用耳朵 (聆聽音樂) 、用手 (觸摸時代),讓我們側轉個身、回頭望向那黑膠唱片單純質樸而風華絕美的年代。
