This Crystalline Sculpture Visualizes Manhattan’s Musical History #musicmonday
The Creators Project published a story on Artist John Davies‘ recent project Soundscape. The project is a 3D map recreation of the Manhattan skyline based on visualizations of sounds and music that are linked to the history of the city’s different neighborhoods:
The buildings that make up Davies’ miniature Big Apple are the peaks and valleys of sound waves from famous NYC songs, adjusted in height based on their respective influence on the NYC music scene. For example, the Lower East Side is represented by a towering Ramones’ Blitzkrieg Bop, and Harlem is packed with skyscraping visualizations of Ella Fitgerald and Louis Armstrong’s Autumn in New York.
