photo and treatment by GS. Photo: summer 1980. Treatment: 1999.


When I was putting together the first version of Phantom Airship, I was very excited to be able to do visual work again specifically illustrating my music. I fooled around with a lot of things for Night Circus. This Swan Ride, which came from photos I took around the time Night Circus was first conceived, is one of my favorites. Only the shape outlines of the original photo look the same; just about everything else here is different. A snapshot from an alternate world, where invisible forces manipulate destiny; a snapshot from the last moment before the end of the world.
