Cyberpub #88: No jacket required

[quote]Derby #88: Music

You’ve listened to the soundtrack…you’ve been served the summons…now wear the t-shirt! This week we’re looking for visual depictions, investigations, commentaries, and triumphant riffs on music in all its permutations. Except a tree shaped like a guitar shaped like a tree. It’s been done.

Obviously, avoid using the names and likenesses of any actual musicians, unless they’re, like, some old composers or something who are too dead and European to sue us.

No text. Thank you! Good night![/quote]

i wonder if musical notes are text.

Notes are probably ok. Tek passed the rejectorator test with his entry in the individualism derby. That inclduded notes and the G treble clef.

from wikipedia:


The word for “eight” (Pinyin: bā) sounds similar to the word which means “prosper” or “wealth” (Pinyin: fā). In regional dialects the words for “eight” and “fortune” are also similar, eg Cantonese “baat3” and “faat3”.

There is also a visual resemblance between two digits, “88”, and the “shuāng xĭ” (‘double joy’), a popular decorative design composed of two stylized characters (“xĭ” meaning ‘joy’ or ‘happiness’).


my entry for derby #7, “visually sound”

definitely some text in there, though. and it’d be a resub anyway.


Yes, the 2008 Olympics where held in the luckiest month in a very very lucky year, unfortunately everyone I knew here on the West coast had the most miserable year in their remembered history.

The word for “four” is a very unlucky number as it sounds like the word for “death”. Therefore, I am hoping the next “4” year will be very very lucky for us.

I’ve had this idea for a while now, and I think this is now the time to complete it. I always thought the negative space on the F bass clef looked like a brontosaur head. Now I just need something to finish out the concept. Any ideas?

I love this. Heee it’s Beethoven’s 5th too. You should figure out a way to resub somehow.

Oh, I certainly hope that guitar hero pucker can have a reunion with his bass-player and drummer and maybe perform a little bit in front of a crowd of puckers holding lighters in the air as a tribute to the trio’s eternal greatness!

Wow I killed the thread.

It dies pretty every thursday, so normally nobody is to blame, but that was particularly off-putting post you made there :tongue:

Yeah I have no tact.

Erk. Not ready for this derby at all. I won’t be submitting until at LEAST tomorrow… But got 2 designs in the pipeline that should be cool.


Here was one of my three:


I think there’s text in there too though.

And this one from one continuous line:


And this one from Revolution


This is mine from music. ;^)
