2018 – Spectral Cities

01 - Vhs Head - Ident

Spectrograms allows to decompose audio records into the audio frequencies along the time axis. For most music files, this decomposition is not very expressive and looks like a chaotic set of bands and spots.
Nevertheless, in the spectrograms of some electronic musicians, we can also see unusual structures. Sometimes I notice even something like architecture and some images looks like the streets of futuristic cities.
For this project, I selected and painted 40 such “architectural” spectrograms from the records of Coil, Gas, Thighpaulsandra, COH, Holger Czukay and other electronic musicians.
