Rolling Stone Brazil and Y&R Brazil (part of VMLY&R Group) have teamed up to create a series of ‘Soundproof Posters’ that serve a dual purpose – soundproofing practice spaces and looking really cool.

Rolling Stone realized that two things happen when teenagers decide to learn the guitar: they will annoy neighbors, parents and siblings, and they will hang band posters on the wall. Combining the two seemed a logical solution.

Teaming with Y&R Brazil, the two created a inspired series of four posters that have soundproof qualities. The posters are entirely made of acoustic foam, coated with fireproof resin and fiberglass. They were crafted by Focus Cinematography, using a new production technique developed specifically for the project.

The posters feature four top guitar legends of past and present – Jimi Hendrix, Keith Richards, Zakk Wylde and Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro.
