    A die-cut album design for Lubomyr Melnyk's Corollaries.
April 15, 2013 will see Canadian pianist Lubomyr Melnyk – the pioneer of 'Continuous Piano Music' – with his first release on Erased Tapes. Entitled Corollaries, the album was recorded and produced by Peter Broderick with the additional help of Nils Frahm and Martyn Heyne. We knew it was time to share the great musical legacy of Melnyk, to which he simply responded: ‘Where were you guys when I was thirty?’

The album artwork was created by American contemporary artist Gregory Euclide, known for his cover art for Bon Iver’s self-titled album. Euclide was listening to early mixes of the recordings on repeat whilst painting the two visual counterparts contained in the record, describing his interpretation of Corollaries as 'a continuous cycle of growth and decay'.
