Waveforms As Art

The Laughing Squid reports on Epic Frequency, a collection of art consisting of carefully chosen waveforms from songs and recordings we all know.  The prints look very, very good hanging on a wall.

This, for example, is from the Beatles’ “Let It Be.”

And this is from Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here.”

    Alan, thanks for the kind words about Epic Frequency. Stairway To Heaven is one of the most interesting ones in my opinion. The song’s dynamics really show well in this format.
