*pop sketch series *
A series of drawings generated from pop songs. the songs are analyzed
note-by-note. at each note, a line is drawn. the angle at which the
line is drawn is determined by the pitch of the note and the length of
the line is determined by the volume of the note. the result is a series
of playful, doodle-like, linear drawings.
pop music is engineered by professional adults for consumption by
teenagers. the content of nearly all of these songs is an assertion of
sexual maturity, and they are being marketed to a group dealing with
that issue, but simultaneously with serious issues of loss as they
conclude pre-adolescence (or childhood). i like to frame this series as
a reinterpretation of the pop music media set that addresses the latter
issue and discards the former, to create a more balanced product for
this target market.
