MusicDNA Turns Your Favorite Songs Into Painted Canvases

MusicDNA Turns Your Favorite Songs Into Painted Canvases

There's a new way to own your favorite music physically... even if your library is completely digital. The makers of MovieDNA are back with a new Kickstarter to fund MusicDNA: a company that allows you to turn music into paintings—you can now put your top tunes on your walls. In a matter of time, I will sleep with Gucci Mane's "Lemonade" watching over me like a soothing guardian angel. 

Created by Rob Hansen and Garrick Dartnell, the project allows users to submit any song's music video and MusicDNA will compress every frame into one color pallette, just like how MovieDNA compressed full-films into a static splotch of color. With MusicDNA the track's unique wave form provides the form that the color pallette gets shaped into: 

 

You can submit your song request for processing over at Musicdna.me, so you can see your artwork before you pledge. The 220gsm Satin paper posters will come in a variety of sizes (the largest being 20" x 40") and can be turned into canvases, as well. Take a look test examples below, paired with each track's music video:

Nicki Minaj's "Starships"

Rihanna "Only Girl"

The White Stripes "Seven Nation Army"

Psy "Gangnam Style"

MusicDNA has already made £690 of its £500 goal, and there's 44 days left in the Kickstarter. This means pretty soon we can hang our favorite slow jamz above our bed or couch. Now that's some serious ambience.
