View album art

Album description:  “Club d’Elf’s debut studio recording was over 8 years in the making! This stunning audio kaleidoscope takes the listener through a strange and wondrous (and sometimes dark & scary) journey through the many musical styles that Club d’Elf has ingested and digested, including jazz, hip-hop, electronica, rock, world trance, etc. Produced and arranged by bassist Mike Rivard (with mixes by Scotty Hard, among others), it features the contributions of 25 musicians” (From Album Notes, 2006).

Texture Credits

The OVC-3D synthesizer uses two-dimensional artwork as textures on small billboards that can be mapped thousands of times into the scene.  The original artwork might be squeezed into a few pixels on the screen, but often the textures are large enough to appreciate the beauty of the 2D art.  We have not been creating the 2D art at VMS, but rather licensing it as stock photos from  We want to give credit to the artists responsible for this art and give you the opportunity to check some of their other works.  The names listed below are the names the artists use on, and the links will take you to the location of their original artwork on  If you click on the artwork, you can navigate to the artists’ portfolios at  Artists who have multiple textures have brackets after their names with links to the additional works.
