Can you repeat that?

The music of Philip Glass is full of repeating patterns and variations.

The cover artwork of a 2011 CD of Glass’s music played by the string quartet, Brooklyn Rider, captures the essence of the music using the technique of repeating and rotating a graphic shape. Rendering the form of a violin as if it were a topographic map adds another dimension to the design giving depth and allowing color to be explored in a progressive fashion by using tints and shades.
