Musical Anatomy


Here’s a lovely collection of  music combined with anatomy drawings by artist Shawn Feeney.  It’s really interesting to see how Feeney restructured each face based on the size and tone of each instrument. I’d love to see these in color with a sound chip attached to each.

From Shawn Feeney:

Musical instruments are prosthetics for body parts we never had. They can extend and transform voice, gesture, and exhalation. The mystery of their forms is matched by the invisible oddity of their sounds. But what if the prosthetics were unnecessary? This series imagines bodies with musical anatomies, referencing musicians from a variety of genres and traditions.
