IT seems the human fascination for attaching visuals to sound continues unabated.
A few weeks ago Fact reported a product on the marketplace website Etsy - a sculpture of the amen break. Created by musician and artist Texan Colin Hendee (aka cactusbathcreative), it is a tribute to the drum loop frequently sampled by dance music over the years - there is currently a crowdfunding project underway to give the musicians just reward. We reckon the ingenious piece of art brings to mind a science fiction spaceship.
Then Macho Zapp reported on the most important audio scientific breakthrough of 2015 so far. Hong Kong undergraduate engineers had found a way to read frequencies above and below the human frequency range by sending the sounds through water and using a laser to read the shape.
Now The Creators Project are reporting on another sculpture - this time of Daft Punk. Artist Xavier Veilhan actually achieved something that countless interviewers failed to do - that is persuading the producers unmask for him. He said: "They proposed to me: 'Okay, we should make the sculpture the non-existing image of us. So if somebody wants to see how we are like in real [life] they'll have to look at the sculpture."
It is the latest part of his project Music which also saw him turn to stone Nigel Godrich, Quincy Jones, Giorgio Moroder, and The Neptunes (Chad Hugo and Pharrell Williams).
The purpose is to portray the relationship he sees between visual artists and music producers.
