3. Sony Music timeline by Alex Fowkes
Conceived by london-based graphic deisgner Alex Fowkes, 'the sony music timeline' celebrates 125 years of musical history covering almost 150 square meters of wall space at their derry street headquarters. Using just CNC cut vinyl as the sole medium, 54 columns measuring over 2 meters tall cover feature nearly 1000 of sony's signed artists from 1887 to the present day.
The list includes icons such as elvis presley, jimi hendrix, bob dylan, bruce springsteen, janis joplin, the clash, michael jackson and many many more. interspersed among the artist names are certain key developments in technology, musical formats and corporate history - from the invention of early recording cylinders to vinyl, cassette, CD, radio, MTV, the sony walkman,
the iPod and the introduction of digital streaming services.
