Roland-TR-808

This series of four posters, dubbed “Program Your 808” is coming from Birmingham-based graphic designer, Rob Ricketts. The posters don’t just look pretty they’re actually functional. Ricketts’ idea was to detail how some of the most notable drum sequences (Afrika Bambaataa’s “Planet Rock,” Cybotron’s “Clear,” A Guy Called Gerald’s “Voodoo Ray” and “No Way Back” by Adonis) were programmed using the Roland TR-808 Drum Machine. Each sequence has been analyzed and represented as to allow you, the user, to re-program each sequence, key for key. Pretty dope.
