Collect your choice of gallery quality Giclée, or fine art prints custom trimmed by hand in a variety of sizes with a white border for framing.



A sonic portrait of Radiohead's "King of Limbs" album, with all relevant information presented in spectrographic data.

At the core: spectrographs of each individual track, from "Bloom" to "Separator," are arranged as concentric rings - each presents musical information in the 40Hz - 1.5KHz frequency range.

Around the circle: each spectrograph is rotated to correspond with the angle of the minute hand at the time that it plays. The first track, "Bloom," begins at 0:00 - its spectrograph begins at 0 deg (midnight). The second, "Morning Mr. Magpie," begins at 5:15 , and is rotated to 31.5 deg (exact position of the clock hand at 5:15).

And so on.

At the bottom: general-frequency spectrograph of the phrase, "Radiohead - The King of Limbs," as spoken by the artist.
