Waveform: Second Wave is the unique Kickstarter project from Sheffield-based designer Alex Szabo-Haslam. Each piece takes the waveform created by one of 30 iconic electronic tracks and turns it into an incredibly stunning piece of art.
By tracing the waveforms of tracks by the likes of LFO, Daft Punk, Donna Summer, Human League, Jeff Mills and Radiohead, you’ve get a visual representation of some of the top tunes from the past 30 years.
Taking the waveforms of 30 iconic tracks from acts as diverse as Surgeon, The Prodigy and Donna Summer, Alex has created series of stunning prints that represent 30 years of electronic music in incredible detail and presented them as handcrafted, silkscreen A2 prints ready to hang on your wall.
Each piece is individually silkscreen printed and costs £30 (although there are discount bundle packages if you’re after multiple prints). The Kickstarter project ends on the September 12th and with public support from guys like Martyn Ware of Heaven 17, Surgeon and Mark Archer from Altern8, expect this one to sell out well before that date...
