See A Visual Interpretation Of A Radiohead Song Using Dangling Cassette Tape

Radiohead's "Last Flowers" gets a physical remix.

Though we're just discovering it now, SVA design student Motoko Ishii gave us a new spin on "seeing music" in 2012, as his project for a typography class recreated the lyrics to Radiohead's "Last Flowers" using dangling cassette tape to shape the lyrics.

The class was encouraged to create "Visual Music," and this was his creative response. The original song is a heartmelter, and Ishii's text is shaped in a font that could be also be described as forlorn (or maybe we're reading too far into it). Either way, it's an awesome project, and he better have gotten a fat A.

Lyrics to "Last Flowers"

"Appliances have gone berserk
I cannot keep up
Treading on people's toes
Snot-nosed little punk And I can't face the evening straight
And you can't offer me escape
Houses move and houses speak
If you take me there you'll get relief
Relief, relief, relief, relief… And if I'm gonna talk
I just wanna talk
Please don't interrupt
Just sit back and listen Cause I can't face the evening straight
And you can't offer me escape
Houses move and houses speak
If you take me there you'll get relief
relief, relief, relief, relief… It's too much
Too bright
Too powerful Too much
Too bright
Too powerful Too much
Too bright
Too powerful

Too much"
