*pop sketch series *

-jake elliott.

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.
