Song Title and Illustrated Album Cover of Trance/Psytrance Music


Recommended Posts

Hello to all. Glad to be a member of this amazing forum. 

I've always been wondering about what what illustrated album cover of genres like "Trance" or subgenre of Trance like PsyTrance usually express. CEV/OEV that DJs experience when they are under the influence of Psychedelic Substances like LSD/DMT? Is there something to consider when choosing a title for songs and albums?

You often have a lot of symbolism/religion/deities of "exotic" cultures, psychedelic "visionary art" or extra-terrestrial/space art attached to psychedelic music releases because of the general relevancy to the sounds and themes they contain. The music is quite abstract and follows many "out-there" themes. It really goes hand in hand in my opinion that releases have such wild "psychedelic" artwork.

I think it's mostly somethimes just good inspiration from the artist ... not necessarily from taking any substances. Sometimes, it can be ... but it's nothing else than a painter getting his / her inspiration - some do it with substances, some are just having an idea in their heads - and some may feel inspired by the art of others...

Sure. Not every trance/psytrance album cover displays a personal drug experience. But unfortunately, many album covers are not well-designed and seem to be totally irrelevant to what the album cover exhibits. Meanwhile the wrong title/name given to the songs is the second mistake that many DJs/Musicians often make.
