Sound and textiles to me looks like a perfect combination. While doing research on this subject I found something really interesting- woven fabric featuring sound patterns. The geometric patterns created by the beats and sounds in music are set to the loom to be materialised. This wonderful project is created by the textiles label BeatWoven, based in London.
Here are a few thoughts from the founder of the project – Nadia-Anne Ricketts:
“When travelling and living around the world I experienced how music is a universal language and at the core of every culture. When I hear music I want to react, whether it’s dancing, singing, or smiling. It can unite us, unlock special memories, take us on an emotional journey and most of all, it can motivate us to focus, create and endure. To be able to express the intangible of music, through woven textiles is super special, as it creates tactile music with an added narrative to any interior space; A woven piano concerto wall hanging in a concert hall for instance, or an Arabic prayer upholstery on a super yacht, or your favourite house track woven and tailored into a garment ”.
