Timeline illustration of 1000 names of Sony Music artists since 1887

"Sony Music has unveiled a graphic installation documenting the company's 125 year musical history. Designed by Alex Fowkes, winner of Creative Review's 'One to Watch' in 2011, the Sony Music Timeline runs throughout the central atrium of Sony's open plan Derry Street offices.

The Installation features nearly 1000 names of artists signed to Sony Music and its affiliated labels from the foundation of Columbia Records in 1887 to the present day, including musical icons Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Janis Joplin, The Clash, Micheal Jackson and many many more.

Interspersed among the artist names are certain key developments in technology, musical formats and corporate history – from the invention of early recording cylinders to vinyl, cassette, CD, radio, MTV, the Sony Walkman, the iPod and the introduction of digital streaming services.

The work is organised by decade into 54 columns measuring over 2 meters tall and covering almost 150 square meters of wall space. It uses CNC cut vinyl as the sole medium for the whole installation.

Emma Pike, VP Industry Relations, who commissioned the piece said, 'The brief was to bring the inspiration of our music into the heart of our building and make our office space live and breathe our incredible musical legacy. Alex's beautiful graphics and illustrations do exactly that.'

Sony's partnership with Fowkes is set to continue as the Sony Music Timeline will grow each year with the addition of new artist names signed by the major.'"

MTV Buzz: avant-garde television

"Buzz is a long forgotten MTV experiment from 1990. In 1988, Mark Pellington developed an idea for a non–linear collage program he called "Buzz". Created in partnership with MTV Europe producer/director Jon Klein, Buzz was an ambitious 13–part global series commissioned by MTV and channel 4 (UK). It was hailed by critics as ground–breaking, adventurous television. This is episode 1 of the 4 episodes that have managed to survive on an old VHS tape to be digitized for your edification in this modern, digital age."

Feature Film: A 'You Tube Narrative Model'?

"Will the You–Tube revolution foster a new narrative model for feature film? Perhaps it's too early to say. But then again, given the rapid proliferation of the online video portal (launched barely a year ago) it's worth thinking about. To date, most discussion on You Tube centres on its relationship with television. However, there are also signs of 'cross–pollination' with the cinema: from the very, very small screen to the big screen.

Scriptwriting author Ken Dancyger says that new 'narrative models' develop against a background of technological innovation, to provide 'narrative experience that re–establishes its connectivity with its audience' (127). Premonitions of a 'You Tube Narrative Model' can be considered in relation to Dancyger's 'MTV Model': the feature film as an assemblage of 'set–pieces' which appropriate both the structure (2–4 minutes) and aesthetic (high production values/rapid montage) of the music video (132). He points to Natural Born Killers (Oliver Stone, 1994) as an example.

But this earlier brand of (80s–90s) postmodern excess has mutated in the new media environment–and new narrative models beckon. "
