    Nebra Sky Disc: new YES logo

    As per FB page. New logo based on the paleolithic astronomical disc found in Germany 1999. Do you like it? Should it be the title of the next YES album? Can Juano write an epic about elders followin' the stars and sun and moon? 😉 Knew about this disk via youtube doco about recent Stonehenge exhibition. Stunnin' object. World heritage item.

    Is this not classic YES terrain?

    Fascinatin' tease. More to come. Roger happy with the paintin' but unhappy as colours drained away on the cover. The cover for the next YES album?
    Intrigue. He claims "more to come". 😯

    Steve Howe initiated idea. For the next album. Roger's words.

    Not just a photo on FB. They made a short video.* Won't be used for the cover as the colours drained away too much on cover accordin' to Roger. But often the logo colours are diametrically opposed to the dominant palette of the paintin'. To stand out better. So. A greeny logo? Means an orangey palette for cover? A sunset?


    *amusingly soundtracked by OOALH. heheheheeee

      And the big question.

      Why create video content on a failed attempt at a logo's colourin' and soundtrack it and lean into the Nebra Sky Disc if the new album doesn't feature
      inspiration/themes from the NSD???? Howe is notoriously reluctant to talk about these records until they come out but Roger has been
      given permission to release all this??? None of the recent logos...H&E's b+w zigzag or TQ's leadlight gets this kind of social media publicity???

          Indeed. It's possible that Dean didn't actually check with Howe about whether he was allowed to talk about all this. It's also possible that this is the beginning of the promo cycle for the new album! Woo.

            Cool. I attended that exhibition. The disc is beautiful and fascinating.

              Thanks, nice! I’m getting Tales vibes, with the Chitzen Itza pyramid. Come to think of it, I have once visited Yucatan and saw that pyramid. And this summer we went to Austria and on top of a mountain they had a copy of that same disk. Coincidence? I think not. Everything in the world is about me!

                So could Nebra Sky Disc be the album title?

                  not sure, after all this idea was discarded.

                    Havin' slept on this. Firstly Steve and Roger have an informal, longstandin' friendship. They swap ideas easily. Both may have seen that Stonehenge exhibition. Steve casually mentions the patination of the bronze with gold accents. Steve also likes photography. He has an eye. He's visually attuned. Roger does a new logo. Runnin' with that idea. As he says. Reduced on the cover. The colours wash out. This idea may not have anythin' to do with the eventual landscape or even a song. I'm hopin' it does. But you never know. Sounds like it could be in Juano's wheelhouse of deep history and Humankind. SNOWFLOWER and all that. The NSD may have been travelled around the known world for religious events. It is all fascinatin'.

                    Now what I like about TQ was then you have Billy who likes technology and futurism. The Singularity. AI. The Metaverse. So you get a nice thematic opposition. So the upcomin' album may again not be too tied to a single concept. But a collection of songs explorin' different subjects.

                    What got me tickled by all this is it reminded me of a side table that I designed and made back in the day. A 3 legged ( huon pine ) table with a thin copper patinated circular top. A mate was patinatin' copper for a tall cabinet and so I used some of the chemicals he got from the Chemistry dept at the Uni of Tasmania. You brushed it on the copper (wearin' gloves) and waited 2 days for the acid to work and dissolve the metal and then you washed the thin crust formed off with water. Great results. A greeny-bluey overall colour with speckles and rashes of orange, red and brown. Bronze is 80% copper. Tin is added I think. To toughen it up. I even remember goin' to a ship chandlery to buy copper nails to use to secure the top. Copper in furniture was very 1989!! Metal and wood. Both copper and huon pine ( very ancient and oily timber ) were good for boat buildin'. Resistant to water.

                      HOLD THE PRESS


                      Just learnt that the tin used in the bronze and gold used in the inlays were from Cornwall in the UK. The UK. Where did YES originate? The UK. Steve lives near Cornwall in Devon. In the UK.

                      Spooky.

                      ( the copper from Austria. Oh. The latitude of Nebra is almost exactly that of Stonehenge ) 😯

                        OK. We may or may not need to bone up on the NSD. Soon. So. How do you pronounce it? Neebro or Nebro???

                        For a deep dive, this lecture by Howard Crowhurst is fascinatin' in a kinda Da Vinci Code way. Language. Astronomy. Maths. History. Egyptology. Science. Geometry.

                          OK. Just for some shits+giggles I used an AI art Generator, Hotpot.ai to show me the new Dean Yes album cover Nebra Sky Disc....took 15 seconds. Free.....

                          Actually has a Floydy vibe to me. And Lord of the Rings too. What do you think????

                            Yep, it’s Floyd eclipse meeting Lord Of The Rings Argonath!
                            What AI art Generator did you use? Looks great, maybe for making your own wallpapers…

                              First time I've tried AI.

                              Yeah. My sense is that like chatbots. All the data is averaged out and you get a slightly cliched, disappointin' result.

                              Dean doesn't do overly symmetrical landscapes.* There's no sense of Dean's special organics. Will be fascinatin' if the NSD is the concept of the album. How he will incorporate the Cosmic parts, geometric designs, aged weatherin'. Like most precious objects. It probably travelled wrapped in animal fur. From King to King. To help realign lunar calendars to solar calendars. And much else. See Crowhurst's lecture and book.


                              * perhaps Union cover withstandin'.
