Italian illustrator Federico Babina has transformed 27 popular songs of David Bowie, Blur, Amy Winehouse, Mozart, Elvis, and still others, into his latest illustration work entitled Archimusic.

“Music and architecture are intimately joined by a cosmic connection: they both are generated by an underlying code, an order revealed by mathematics and geometry” Babina says; music is an art form whose medium is sound and silence.

Babina describes his work: “in these images architecture and music share a clear cultural lineage. The color and the different nuances of music shape the forms and volumes. Reading horizontally gives some basic melodic lines, while reading vertically reveals both harmony and dissonance. A building like an harmonic progression following the movement of chords. A spatial progression that is equivalent to the harmonic progression through chords. Generate a rhythm of solids and voids to reproduce the sequences of notes and silences.”
