有音樂的地方,視覺幾乎不會缺席。音樂作為青年文化的重要陣地,其相關的視覺設計可以說是想象力與創造力最野蠻生長的地方。今天Livehouse和Club等場所成為了越來越多人夜裡最愛的報到之地。對很多人來說,到現場享受音樂和舞動身體的快感以及地下音樂和視覺創作都是靈感之源。在圖像主導的當下,好看和好聽同樣重要。俱樂部音樂的呈現方式已經不僅涉及聽覺層面的進化,還有視覺層面的革新。兩者共同構築的美學體系和品位彷彿是愛好者們心照不宣的事情。

本期聚焦俱樂部音樂和設計,邀請了7位Design-clubbers組成Line-up,他們本身都是熱愛音樂(或者喜愛夜蒲)的人,當中也有人擁有自己的俱樂部。無論是音樂還是設計,都是他們生活裡不可或缺的東西。和俱樂部音樂類似,俱樂部的平面設計一般異於主流,同時有一種難得的放鬆姿態——感覺對了就對了。這樣的設計通常很私人化,有時甚至像是設計師和音樂人的一場精神交流,至於功能反而不是那麼重要。也正是這種自由和任性讓這個領域誕生了很多視覺實驗,在圖像爆炸的環境中還能給眼球帶來驚喜。

Where there is music, there is visual. Music as an important field of youth culture, its related visual design is where imagination and creativity grow most wildly. Today, livehouses and clubs are becoming more popular as people choose their favourite places to go at night. For many, the pleasure brought by live music and dancing is as inspirational as the underground music and visual. In an era dominated by image, nice sound comes with good looking. The way club music is presented not only involves the innovation of sound but also of visual. Together they construct the aesthetic system and taste unanimously recognised by fans.

This issue focuses on club music and design. We invited 7 Design-clubbers to form the Line-up. Music and design being indispensable to their lives, all of them are club lovers and some are even club owners themselves. Similar to club music, graphic design in the club is usually disctintive from the mainstream and looks carefree — which is rare — that they only concern whether it feels right. Such design is often personal: the spiritual communication of the designer and musician outweighs the function of design. It is this freedom and wilfulness that have given birth to various visual experiments, which keeps surprising us even in the era of image explosion.
