Paul Simon – The Artist
Paul Frederic Simon (born 1941) is an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor. Simon’s musical career has spanned over six decades. He is widely regarded as one of the best songwriters in popular music history.Bonding over a shared love of the Everly Brothers, and after whom they modelled their early sound, he formed the duo Simon & Garfunkel, in 1956 with childhood friend Art Garfunkel. While and after attending college, the two continued to perform together, with Simon also performing and recording some solo songs. After graduating college, they recorded their first album, Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M., which consisted of a mixture of cover songs, traditional ballads, and a number of Simon-penned originals. The album flopped and Simon left the U.S. emigrating to England to record The Paul Simon Songbook, his first solo album. A heavily overdubbed remix of their song “The Sound of Silence” became a surprise radio hit over the winter of 1965-1966, leading Simon to return to the U.S. and reform the duo with Garfunkel; they would release four more studio albums together and become one of the best-selling and most critically acclaimed groups of the late 1960s. Simon would compose nearly all of their original songs, including hit singles such as “Mrs. Robinson”, “Scarborough Fair/Canticle”, “America”, and “Bridge over Troubled Water”.After Simon & Garfunkel split up in 1970, at the height of their popularity, Simon began a successful solo career. He recorded three acclaimed albums over the following five years. His 1972 self-titled album contained the hit songs “Mother and Child Reunion” and “Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard”, while the follow-up There Goes Rhymin’ Simon featured the lead single “Kodachrome”.
Kodachrome – The Song
‘Kodachrome’ is is a song by the American singer-songwriter Paul Simon. It was the lead single from his third studio album, There Goes Rhymin’ Simon (1973), released on Columbia Records. The song is named after Kodak’s now-discontinued reversal film brand Kodachrome.
The Kodak Logo – The Shape
This record has been modelled into the logo of the photographic company Kodax who was the manufacturer of Kodachrome. Kodachrome is the brand name for a colour reversal film introduced by Eastman Kodak in 1935. It was one of the first successful colour materials and was used for both cinematography and still photography. For many years Kodachrome was widely used for professional colour photography, especially for images intended for publication in print media. Because of its complex processing requirements, the film was sold process-paid in the United States until 1954, when a legal ruling prohibited that. However, the arrangement continued in other markets. Due to the growth and popularity of alternative photographic materials, its complex processing requirements, and the widespread transition to digital photography, Kodachrome lost market share. Its manufacture was discontinued in 2009, and processing ended in December 2010.
