The 'Alma Hermosa' EP is the first official release from Garamond –
the musical moniker of graphic designer Gareth Paul Jones.
The 4 tracks cover many of my musical influences from Acid House, Ambient, Breakbeat, Chicago, Deep House
to name but a few - all with a cinematic expanse and underpinned with a 4/4 rhythm. The lead track (and EP title) came about following
a trip to the Cap de Creus peninsula in the far northeast of Catalonia during Summer 2017, and simply translates as 'Beautiful Soul'.
The concept for the artwork came from my love of the outdoors and wild nature. However instead of using my own photography
I wanted something a bit more otherworldly so decided to utilise the rights free imagery available on the NASA website -
therefore allowing me to create a visual narrative that fitted the EP perfectly.
