Visual Representation Poster


This limited edition Giclee poster by Stuart Tolley is a visual representation of the Bob Marley song I Shot The Sheriff. It shows the relationship between the bass guitar notes and the electric guitar’s treble notes.

Stuart worked out a grid for the length of the song and divided it up by the amount of beats per minute to create a timeline. Each note was then plotted and played on the 2 instruments using a traditional music scale as a basis. This was then adapted to make it visual, and layered each visualization over the other to show how they interact. It’s a brilliant concept if not a little OCD.
