These Awesome Illustrations Merge Music and Architecture #arttuesday
In his project Archimusic, Artist Federico Babina transformed some of his favorite iconic songs into architectural drawings! from designboom:
the drawn edifices are placed on the musical staff as a metaphor for structural foundation. while some of the architectural structures resemble the musicians themselves, others reference popular album covers and titles, melodic tones, harmonies, chords and spatial progressions evident in the songs. in one example, a mostly white tower is capped by a black roof and row of windows, supported by a angled beam — the image closely resembles the familiar image of rock legend elvis presley singing into his microphone. another instance describes the stacked floors of a building as the undulating graphics from joy division’s ‘unknown pleasures’ album. take a look below for the full series and final ‘city’.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
