Mapping Project

The brief for this project was to ‘map’ the song ‘Chrome Country – Oneohtrix Point Never’. I developed a bank of symbols which were assigned to melodic and percussive instruments played in the song. I also assigned a colour to each chord being played in sequence. I created a music video using these colours and symbols which appeared in time to the music.

The video was projected in a room accompanied by a ‘key’. The key was an A1 poster displaying the system I had created to map the song (pictured below).

This project was set during my second year on the BA Graphic Design course at Manchester Metropolitain University.
