The Music and Art Live the On: Gerard Smith’s Tragic Death

I was very saddened this morning to learn of Gerard Smith’s death. He was only 34. Smith was the bassist for the band TV on the Radio and an incredibly gifted musician.

It’s strange how the news changed the context of the cover for me and how poignant, lonely and empty the imagery appears now… The album art’s beauty speaks for itself. Sadly, medical science could not save Gerard, but his music and this artwork will live on as a testament to his life and talent.
