ASK ME ANYTHING
Having interviewed jazz pop band 4te, the final concept I am presenting for my project is a series of 5 flip books that showcases various live performances that 4te have done throughout the years. The questions have specifically been placed at the back of the books as I was inspired for this concept after having come to their practice sessions. I really appreciated their collaborative work and admire their willingness to enjoy their creative practice despite the business aspect that originally encompasses their band. I also felt like the answers to most of my questions lie behind the scenes of what they do so I wanted the questions to be somewhat hidden and not directly in view so that the books can be fully explored in an interactive manner to then find the answer ‘behind the scenes’.
I decided to present the interview flip books in a clean looking, black and white box to portray 4te’s business oriented operation (they mainly play live for functions and events). Underneath I incorporated my colour and rather chaotic illustrations as I wanted to incorporate their fun and energetic attitude towards music, enjoying it for what it is.
