Wrekmeister Harmonies and Nadja in Berlin


Wrekmeister Harmonies, led by musician and composer JR Robinson, is an experimental music collective. Named after the Béla Tarr movie Werckmeister Harmonies, it combines elements of drone music, serialism, post-rock, and heavy metal.

When I heard that Wrekmeister Harmonies was coming to Berlin, I had to start sketching ideas for a poster. Their opening act is Nadja and I love them too. The first thing I did was a female face with luscious hair and I liked it so much I decided to use as the poster. 

The sketch was done on a cardboard I had laying around the house and it showed me that this isn't the perfect place to draw something like that. 

After the initial drawing, I decided to play around with some different pens since the paper was really bad absorbing ink.

After I realized that the image wasn't suitable to become a poster, I decided to test out something else and did some tracing on Illustrator. The final result was better than I imagined so I decided to use it on the poster.

Above you can see the final result and I love when I finish a poster project before the concert happens. Looking forward to see Wrekmeister Harmonies live here in Berlin.
