a lyric a day

Architecture is influenced by many styles of art including photography, painting, music and graphics just to name a few.  When I came upon the website alyricaday.com I was immediately intrigued by the music chosen, but also the ways the designer Luke S. Beard chose to graphically represent each song.  He plays with typography in some images and uses large graphic images and less pronounced text in others to portray the importance of each carefully chosen lyric.  It brings to mind the value of graphic covers for music.  In a world of instant downloads you begin to loose the appreciation for album artwork.

Here is a short slideshow of a lyric a day images, but I recommend checking out the archives on alyricaday.com.  You’ll find new music that you’ve never heard of before and also be visually stimulated.
