Scientific Illuminism

With his deliciously clinical, woozy, bassy instrumental 'Scientific Illuminism (Is For Sissies)' HipGnosis embarks in a different direction, more usually working with some remarkable vocalists, to fit their visions together. "It's a facilitative career that i am in. Producers do a lot of work that goes unrecognized in making an album, whether it is sculpting the sounds of multiple voices into sultry smoothness or adjusting compression ratio on an overanxious bass groove so that it nestles snugly in with the drums. On the social side, I come into contact with many people who influence what i do in many ways. on most albums, I feature a number of different vocalists, in other cases featuring producers with whom I collaborate. this involves having a vision of what the finished product will be well before the start of production, yet remaining open to collaborators' influences and ideas during the creation, recording, and finalization processes. It's like being a map-maker, and having to constantly rewrite the maps you spend your time on."
