From BITROT‘s release page: “In our “Kollektive” series we hope to bring out a common thread among tracks and artists we choose. Sometimes we will give artists a concept to work on. Sometimes, like the first Kollektive, we make it our own task to find it. Although tracks might be from varying styles of experimental electronic music and countries, we think no matter what style or which country the artists may come from, they share some common characteristics. This gives the global underground scene of the experimental electronic music, a sense of a tight community even though it`s spread miles apart physically.
In the first edition of Kollektive we bring you music from Iran, Mexico, Ukraine, Greece, France, Russia, Netherlands, U.S, U.K and Canada.”
The collective nature of the release gravitated the idea behind the artwork to be about the same essence but in a different discipline. Using the similar characteristics in Particle Systems a series of artwork was made that tried to illustrate some of the different forms particles can take.
In the end the pieces were composited to reach the final design. Thanks to BITROT’s Arash Akbari for compositing the final piece and his final touch.
