In 2017 I started archiving the many different types of music I enjoy into playlists. I scraped most of them, but some, have evolved. Through time, I’ve used such collections as a medium to explore concepts I can’t get out of my head. Sounds and visuals sometimes convey what’s in my mind better than words could ever do.

foreversince is a custom album I compiled from tunes that help me get into my psyche and my feelings when I need to be at ease with myself and the world around me. The creative process of this piece draws inspiration from yūgen and ensō in traditional Japanese aesthetics. I went with a minimal aesthetic and contrasting typographic elements. The iridescent finishes add a particular character to the traditional CD jewel case format.

I released the compilation in 2019.
