Electronic Landscapes: Music, Space and Resistance in DetroitArrowClose

Electronic Landscapes celebrates Detroit’s techno, house and hip-hop musicians who construct home studios, renovate buildings and sustain community despite increasing pressure from land development and speculation. It sheds a fresh light on the city’s cultural significance and further contextualizes its current resurgence as featured musicians discuss their process and the significant link between race, space and cultural production.

 

We designed the book to reflect this contextualization by acting as both visual narrative and referential object. Compositional and tactile choices—including staggered essay texts and repeated, debossed cover typography—create rhythm and reflect the music that holds together the communities, landscapes, and stories explored throughout the book.
