Underwriters Laboratories is a global testing lab that certifies the performance of all manner of products. In 2016, they launched a sound-quality testing program to ensure that manufacturer claims about their products matched some reality. To add some excitement and style to their new program, they commissioned a large piece of art. My love of music, guitars, and involvement in creating many audio products made this an easy and particularly fun project. Guitars, drums, cymbals, horns, and recording gear combine to tall a story of creation, sound, technology, color, and the mix of all these things.
