Musique Couture


What: making waves with an audio controlled sewing machine.

A tangible way to make audio visible. Equalizers and simple sub-titles on TV already visualise sound, yet this has also a physical texture. Using an old sewing machine and a car radio as a basis, they conceptualised a prototype, which would take sound input and convert it into a sound wave of thread on textile. A fitting analogy between music production and sweatshop manufacturing.
