What Is Vaporwave?
Proving that culture is in everything humans touch, there’s this genre based on bland corporate music from the eighties like mall muzak, advertising jingles and computer sounds. Vaporwave is also an art movement. It’s remix culture centered on the bold geometric shapes, glitch art and clip art of the 1980s. It’s neon, especially pink, purple and aqua. But it is these things deconstructed; the music is slowed down, distorted, so the refrains from an earlier, more innocent time have a haunting effect.
