The inspiration for my design came through my husband’s own musical curiosities. His deep dive into synthesizers introduced me to this underground world of beautifully crafted machines. The designs range from minimal to complex with quizzical and abstract graphics layered among knobs, buttons and lights. To create my design I pulled imagery from some of the machines I’ve photographed over the years and combined linear representations of the sound waves created by these machines.
