I need a cover design for a music theory book. The book is about musical rhythm theory for songwriters, how to create better rhythms in any musical genre.
I will need the cover in two languages, Hungarian and English.
The title of the book: The key (Hungarian title: A kulcs)
Subtitle: How to create better rhythms (Hungarian subtitle: Hogyan alkossunk jobb ritmusokat) PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE BOTH LANGUAGES IN ONE DESIGN! I need the cover in TWO VERSIONS, NOT one version with two languages.
Theory is based on the "clave" which means "key" or "code" in Spanish. The clave is a rhythm pattern and also a musical instrument too. Most people identify it with Latin music, especially Cuban music (Salsa). But my theory is that this rhythm is presented in every musical genre, pop, rock, jazz, worldmusic and even electronic music too. I analyze songs from all these genres in the book, and also created a method which helps to create better rhythms.
I have no idea about what the design should look like so I'm open for any idea.
UPDATE: I prefer artistic and abstract covers, no clichés or stereotypes.
UPDATE: Please don't use clef key and musical notes on the design.
The book will be printed 148x210 mm (A/5)
Spine size: about 10 mm (+-2mm)
