i really love experimental jetset’s work. you need to go to their site now. i could spend days looking at their archives and i really appreciate that they actually took the time to explain their pieces. yeah, i know – sometimes if you have to explain the concept it may not be as good. i can appreciate that. i tend to disagree with that notion though. mostly because i’m probably too daft to fully understand things sometimes, ha ha. but hey, some took shannon’s channel coding theorem at face value and some wanted to see the proof behind it.
anyway, the idea for the poster is my little homage to these talented dutch folks. they conceived this idea years ago and it’s been redone several times over. i did a little bit of checking and didn’t see a radiohead version. i thought that that was blasphemy. so i made my own. rather than completely recycling the idea, i thought i’d add a little twist to signify the brotherly connection between members of the band. at the same, i thought i’d try and acknowledge a pair of swiss fellows who helped make jetset’s poster possible as well.
