Michał is a remarkable landscape photographer and photo-manipulationist, based in Warsaw, Poland.
As a long time admirer of Michał’s amazing work, it came as a pleasant surprise to receive a request from him to help develop his
personal vision for the album cover concept. Michał had already shot all the necessary photographic images, but wanted to insert
a ‘labyrinth-like’ structure into the valley between the mountains. This was where I came in! Using my current software of choice;
the 3D fractal application Mandelbulb3D, I was able to create a suitable ‘maze’ which Michał could then composite into his image.
Personally, I think the image works on a number of levels, and helps convey some sense of the epic, grandiose sound of Chad’s
excellent, atmospheric and inspiring music. I feel very privileged to have added my small creative contribution to this superb work.
An excerpt from Chad’s website describing ‘Pathways':
“Grandiose orchestral passages combine with modern electronic ambiences establishing a new sound to Kettering’s repertoire.
With ‘Pathways’ a more melodic approach is taken throughout the album to convey a positive perspective to the complex journey of life.
Beautiful solo contributions are made by cellist Kari Kettering of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and vocalist Francesca Genco.
After a 20 year hiatus from playing trumpet, Kettering returns to the instrument in a special song featured at the end of the album.”
Having repeatedly immersed myself in this album, I can thoroughly recommend it to all those who enjoy the highest quality ambient
