Sometimes the online world reveals unsuspected parallel dimensions. This is an unknown restyle of Neural independently (and secretly as we never knew about it) made by NY-based Motion and Graphic Designer, Clarke Blackham. Very nicely made, perhaps only a bit glossier for the magazine’s line, it testifies once more how even your most familiar outcomes can have another life somewhere else.
The unpredictable resurgence of vinyl has rekindled an interest in physical sonic structures. Gilles Azzaro’s “Macrogroove” realises the idea of a three-dimensional sonogram. It is a 3D printed ‘audio coding’, which is played by a laser beam, scanning the form and reproducing it in real time, through a manual crank. The extrusion of the virtual in a three-dimensional space provides a new model for a sonic ‘object’. While the author refers to the early crank-manoeuvred phonograph, the aesthetics and functionality of this object (high audio quality, although limited to 10 seconds), demonstrate a different methodology for converting abstract data in an operative form.
