: 2014 :

    2014fka Twigs令人過目不忘的專輯" LP 1 "  封面便是出於Jesse Kanda之手,五種扭曲面向的視覺,在一般發行的唱片中,被隱藏在專輯紙盒內;而黑膠版則是直接輸出。這系列的視覺在紐約藝廊中展出到2014年的八月,值得一提的是,這張專輯同時也被學院大獎葛萊美提名為最佳專輯包裝

“LP 1 ” by singer fka Twigs came out in 2014, and Jesse designed her album cover art work and visuals, five faces of fka twigs, twisted, hollow, and inflated, this series of visuals exhibited in a gallery at NYC. And this album was nominated by Grammy Awards as Best Recording Package with designer, Phill Lee.


Electronic album “Xen”, Jesse was as Arca’s art director and rendered the cover art.

        來自專輯內的四首單曲音樂錄影帶”Thievery””Now You Know”“Xen”“Sad Bitch”,也都是Jesse製作。

Also four music video of singles from “Xen” were made by Kanda, including ”Thievery”, ”Now You Know”, “Xen” and “Sad Bitch”.


        今年11/27日發行的 ”Mutant”專輯系列視覺同樣也是由Kanda操刀,但這次不同的是,JesseArca尚未釋出官方音樂錄影帶,值得高興的是,這一次的演唱會,這對完美的合作夥伴將會一起巡演。

And this year, as usual, Jesse worked with Arca again, covered by an inflated creature with two horns. But this time, Jesse hasn’t make videos for Arca yet.

          但也由於Jesse前衛的視覺,讓好朋友ArcaInstagram帳號因為違反社群守則的緣故被永久停用,Arca在官方推特上說:Jesse為單曲 ”Vanity”的視覺讓我的Instagram帳號被刪除了,這就是我們身處的世界。」

Due to Jesse’s visuals for “Vanity” got Arca’s Instagram account banned forever. The singer tweeted “ This is the world we live in.”

        在上週,歌手碧玉在官方Youtbe頻道上傳了”Mouth Mantra”的音樂錄影帶,影片中的嘴巴內部影像,都是從歌手本人的嘴巴拍攝,也讓人聯想到創傷 2”的影片,雖然都是與嘴巴有關,但兩支錄影帶因為音樂而呈現完全不同的風格。

About a week ago, Björk released her whole new music video of “Mouth Mantra”, shots from singer’s mouth and full of Kanda-style, this video is really worth-watching.
