Underworld – Born Slippy Trainspotting Sound Wave Art

I recently went to see the sequel to one of my all time favourite films, Trainspotting. Not as good as the original but it’s still worth a watch.

Trainspotting was based on the novel by the amazing Scottish author, Irvine Welsh. When I read Trainspotting way back in 1995 I was instantly a fan of his style. I honestly thought a movie could not do justice to the book. Fortunately it was directed by arguably the best director of recent years, Danny Boyle. The movie… and it’s sound track are still iconic over 20 years later (Damn, that makes me feel old).

I could have chosen so many amazing songs from the soundtrack as a tribute… but in the end it just had to be Born Slippy by Underworld. One of the greatest, booming dance tracks ever.

The Beach Boys – God Only Knows Sound Wave Art

Pet Sounds was the eleventh studio album by The Beach Boys. The album is crammed full of classics, even so, one track stands out head and shoulders above the rest… God Only Knows.
For it’s time in 1966, the production of this track is amazing. Some songs age over time, God Only Know’s just keeps getting better.

Please enjoy my Sound Wave Art inspired by the song. Although not a style available on my shop site yet, please get in touch if you’d like a personalised song created in this original style.

David Bowie Blackstar Sound Wave Art

David Bowie was arguably one of the most influential artists of the last fifty years. As a musician, he never settled on a style and was always willing to experiment. He faced so much criticism for his range of styles, but mostly what he did was way ahead of his time.

When he passed away in 2016 it was one of of the greatest losses of musical talent I have seen in my life time. In an age of instant fame and reality TV stars, we will never likely see his kind again.

My Blackstar art is a tribute to Bowie and his titular track from his final amazing album.

Radial Sound Wave Art – Stairway To Heaven

Some Friday Waveform fun to kick off the weekend. Radial Sound Wave art created from Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven.
Every Sound Wave is Unique, Every song has it’s own individual signature waveform.

Radial wave was created initially in Adobe Photoshop and as I required clean, crisp lines it was finalised in Illustrator.

This style is not available on my shop website ‘yet’ but if you’d like me to create an art print of a particular song just get in touch. It could be the perfect personalised gift for someone special.

Custom Sound Wave art can be commissioned at my art site monowaveart.co.uk

Stone Roses Cassette Wave Form Art

More sound wave art today 🙂
Retro cassette with tape creating the sound wave of the song ‘I Wanna Be Adored by The Stone Roses.
Was a pleasantly challenging piece. Getting the sound waves to look like tape involved a fair bit of ‘out the box’ lateral thinking, but got there in the end.
Cassette drawn in Adobe Illustrator, ‘tape’ wave created in Adobe Photoshop.

St James park line art

As a fan of Newcastle United I wanted to make a piece of artwork simple, striking and (I think stylish)  😉 Drawn accurately to scale and at the correct compass orientation, this artwork shows St James’ Park from above (without the usual grey clouds). Simplified line art similar to architectural an architectural plan of the stadium.I would love to be a regular attendee to this amazing stadium but money and time seem to conspire against this.

Newcastle Typograhic Map

Typographic Map of Newcastle Upon Tyne by Alex Patterson

I created this typographic map of my home city, Newcastle Upon Tyne as a personal project to go in my studio. I’ve lived in Newcastle area all my life yet never really took notice of the actual street names.
Weirdly it was quite enjoyable creating this map, but I’m not keen on creating any similar pieces (doesn’t mean that I won’t though).
