Critique! 9 – Audiomachine – Existence


Audiomachine creates music for motion picture advertising. You may have heard some of their scores in Prometheus, or Thor The Dark World.

The artwork for Audiomachine’s new release, Existence, was created by the fantastic Android Jones. Seeing the cover on the itunes store, it was instantly recognizable as one of Jones’ works. The artwork in it’s entirety can be seen on his facebook fan page.


The cropped version (final album artwork) is ethereal and epic. Jones uses a rich color palette, elaborate shapes and patterns, and human figures in a way that works well with audiomachine’s orchestral music. Interestingly, the type treatment of “Existence” is reminiscent of the logo for the “Aliens” film series.
