> _________________________
>
> SONIC LANDSCAPES offers a journey into a place where sound is seen and
> image is heard.
> The reader travels through a variety of musical genres including
> classical, jazz, blues, folk,
> country, rock, pop, new age, urban, world, and electronic, and explores
> the challenges in
> capturing a visual sense of a physically and spatially unconfined art.
>
> SONIC LANDSCAPES is not another “style bible,” or merely a collection of
> aesthetically
> stimulating graphic design products from the music industry, organized
> into conventionalized
> types. The goal of SONIC LANDSCAPES is to teach the reader how to think
> about the
> relationship between music and visual design. This is accomplished by
> providing a user-friendly
> framework in which to analyze the factors of form, function, technology,
> and context in the
> music graphics industry.
>
> SONIC LANDSCAPES seeks specimens that embrace the various methods of
> production:
> artistic and commercial, individual and collaborative, two-dimensional
> and three-dimensional.
> Each work should exhibit the following: technical proficiency, a
> signature or personal imprint
> of the artist or designer, and a meaning that transcends the
> original/commercial function to
> become self-contained artifact.
>
> SONIC LANDSCAPES will be organized into four sections:
>
> I. Voice
> Introduces the subject of the music seen with precedents, principles,
> parameters, and
> processes.
>
> II. Notation
> Analyzes the use of sign and symbol systems in creating identity and
> branding for musical
> artists, recording projects, and performances: legibility, readability,
> and function of typeface
> design, logotypes, notation systems will be emphasized.
>
> III. Material
> Analyzes the use of material in the creation of products and packaging
> for the music industry:
> issues of style and substance will be emphasized.
>
> IV. Atmosphere
> Analyzes the use of space and other multi-dimensional environments and
> structures in the
> visualization of sound.
