The Metallic Spheres album project between the Orb and David Gilmour brought together two of my all time favourite masters of music to create an epic landmark psychedelic soundscape. As a music lover of both The Orb and Pink Floyd, it was a dream come true. I was inspired to create visuals based on the paradox of traveling without movement, inwards like a Shaman shifting through altered states deep into the vast imagination of inner space.
The Metallic spheres themselves had to look baroque, fusing elements that cast them as foreboding. I straddled the styling to create objects that appeared both ancient and futuristic. They had to look mysterious and alive, like sentient technology traveling to meet the listener to pass on messages from another dimension.
