Chasing the visual in music

Zine design for Society4odds, an experimental collaborative project exploring the connections between visuals and music. All content – text, interviews, photography – was created during or shortly after the Soundrive Festival 2019 in Gdańsk, Poland.




By the time we ended up doing this project, we were fighting our way into the festival world for more than a year. Our aim was to make you put down your phone and basically look. Look for all the intersting things in music, but most of all – visuals. Is there anything like it – visual music?

We did our best to look for it, went to two music festivals with acute senses and investigated this kind of experience. It wasn't an easy road. Being a concert photographer is challenging, precisely because of the fact that you work with music, but mostly capture the visual aspect of it. The magical photos happen to be the ones in which actually "see" the music. We all know iconic photos from shows and festivals. It's not always the stage, mostly you'll see dedicated audience, some kind of connection between artists and their fans or backstage. These are the things we tried to capture, but it is a strange position to be in. You have to become a some kind of clairvoyant running around in between audience and musicians, pointing your camera at situations that happen only once and will never ever be repeated. getting the perfect shot is more than satisfying, but what's next? Is is the last visual thing we get from live music?

The golden times of musical newspapers are sadly gone, however there might be a revival. The revolution is slowly coming. We are trying to help it fully bloom.
