Example 1: Christian Marclay:
Top Ten : A pie-graph of the top ten selling records of all time is recreated as
a record, using proportional wedges from the records involved, which
include The Eagles, Michael Jackson, Boston, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Pink
Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, Elton John and Billy Joel.
This project is relevant to my motivation because it a very unique cultural artifact that visually and soundly tell a story of the most popular music artists of this century. Marclay is an influential to the hip hop and sampling culture.
Contemporary Art walk over a floor created by artist Christian Marclay made up of vinyl records Friday, Sept. 28, 2007, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. The exhibit, part of "Sympathy for the Devil: Art and Rock and Roll Since 1967," seeks to examine the ways that contemporary art and rock music have converged over the past 40 years, opens Saturday and runs through Jan. 6, 2008.
Example 2: DJ Spooky: Book: Paul Miller gives us the rhythm of sampled culture -- culture created by those who can remix, and by technologies that enable anyone to remix.

Dark, with bright flashes, in tempo, with syncopation, it is a companion to the next stage, if we're allowed that next stage despite law that would keep us locked in the past.
Dr. Gottfried Ungerboeck whose Trellis Coded Modulation creates an optimal way to encode the ones and zeros in analog waveforms to allow the maximum amount of data to be transmitted over an analog telephone line by minimizing small noise induced distortions. Dr. Ungerboeck is currently at IBM's Zurich Research Laboratory, Switzerland. His coding techniques are at the heart of MsPinky's Interdimensional Wrecked System.
Here is a sample of how Ms Pinky is used for audio data visualization.
This is relevant to my motivation because Ms Pinky can be used to create powerful moving sound experiences.
