Cybertronian Art and Music by Leathurkatt-TFTiggy Cybertronian Art and Music by Leathurkatt-TFTiggy

Description:
More Transformers info I wrote up, this time detailing a bit about their art, architecture, and music. I went through canon resources and what I gleaned from the movies, then wrote this as my version of what I think would be considered aesthetically pleasing to them as far as what they would be used to in their own culture. Take it or leave it as you will, and if you disagree or don't like it, that's fine. You don't have to read it or use what I wrote here, just don't attack and belittle me for what I post. If you do use this, please give credit where credit is due.

:bulletblack: For details on what a Tesseract and Related Uniform Polytropes are, you can find the information HERE --> [link]
:bulletblack: For an idea of how their living quarters are designed, watch this video HERE --> [link]
:bulletblack: To hear the resonant cyclic hum of a star or what a Cybertronian Spark would sound like, have a listen HERE --> [link]

If anyone wants to see what I actually started with to make these files, have a look at the following links below:
Thirteen (also known as the Dynasty Primes)

Language
Units of Time
Anatomy
Biology
Spark
Laser Core
Reproduction
CNA
Hatchling
Anatomic Euphemism

Pit
Scrap
Slag (slang)
Unicron's Spawn

Do you know where I can find a sample of what Cybertronian music might sound like?

Mostly all electronic, no drum beat, think of some of Daft Punk's more harmonic stuff (minus the drums).

Not off the top of my head.  Just go through what they have and find the ones that don't have a drum beat in them.  Might find something off the Tron Legacy OST.

(Well written overview of Cybertronian culture! :D It's also a great idea that you post your writing as drawings, it avoids the nuisances of the default dA writing editor and allows to add more cool effects, which you're excellent at doing by the way :la: Cool job, I'll read more of your work :iconskrillexyayplz:)

Thank you very much! **grins** I'm glad you like my work. With everything I post regarding Transformers, I always start with canon and expand from there with real world reference background (robotics, engineering, mechanics, cultural anthropology, etc) to include what seems most logical to me, considering the fact that I've actually researched quite a number of subjects that would relate to this sort of thing. **smiles** Thank you again, and please let me know what you think of them.

L-O-V-E that transforming apartment :heart::squee::heart: What do you wanna bet, TFs have got everything in their houses done by switches that're switched magnetically? This is verrry cool, btw ^^

Either magnetically or by remote neural transceiver signal. **grins** Or both.

A remote signal would be a higher magnetic freq, anyway, it'd still be magnetic, you know. ;)

You're welcome, and sure you can. **smiles** Llamas are a silly little thing people give each other on DA to show they like or appreciate a person. The type of Llama changes as you get more of them, such as Super Llamas, Albino Llamas, Super Albino Llamas, etc.

You can lay your head against a bot's chest like humans do to hear each other's heartbeat, or a bot can project the resonance of their own Spark by amplifying the sound through their own audio systems so others can hear it. Though some bots like Soundwave have sensory systems that are so sensitive they can pick up the Spark pulse of every bot in the solar system.

This gives me a more fresh, accurate perspective about Windsong, since he is both a writer and a singer. Them singing in that way makes sense, in terms of Cybertronians, it really does. I don't think I'll bother finding theme with lyrics for him now >.>.

Wow! Now that apartment was really something else! That was just awesome,and listening to the spark pulse is....acctually putting me to sleep -o- *yawn* It's like I'm layen' on Jazz's Chassis and I'm fallen asleep to the sound of his spark pulse =D (lol,sorry,got a little carried away there. ^^; Yeah,as you so guessed,I 'm in love with Jazz =D ) you did a great job on this,well done :clap:

Thank you very much! I'm glad you like it. Yeah, Jazz is seriously awesome and after studying the things I have since childhood, hearing the star resonance made me think of the cyclic hum of a Transformer's Spark. **grins** The apartment design idea made me think of how Transformers are with retractable weapons and such and their preference towards high levels of efficiency and such, so it makes perfect sense to me that their buildings would be designed in a similar fashion.

This is well written and well thought out, and I can tell that you put a lot of work and effort into it! Glad you agreed with me about the Transformers having interior structural design similar to that apartment, I love that video and wish I could live there :D

Thanks a lot. **grins** Yeah, it makes total sense to me, given their advanced culture and technology and the fact that they try to maintain efficiency in what they do in canon as it is, plus with their universal preference towards hidden compartments and retractable weapons and tools and such. XD So yeah, makes perfect sense that their buildings would be designed that way.

That's what I was thinking the first time I watched the video. The architect is truly brilliant and it's a shame he isnt more recognized. *Rolls eyes* Crap celebrities like OJ Simpson become so recognized, but not decent architects...

Sadly. Hell, if I had the funding I would see about having him convert a whole house like that.

That would be awesome :D There are so few architectural projects that actually succeed. People get stuck in rule ruts and think that all new designs have to look resembling the old ones, it's stupid...

No kidding... I agree with my friend ~Built4ever architects should have to do a year of mandatory construction work so they learn just how inefficient some of their designs are
