Traditional Folk Embroidery Made Into Playable Music

Ecouterre reports on design student Zsanett Szirmay, of the Moholy-nagy University of Art and Design Budapest, who created sound artwork by transforming traditional folk embroidery into sound woven into playable music.

Szirmay told Ecouterre. “Early computers also used such punch cards, with the information coded in such formats. The weaving machinery too works on this basis, and I imagined, why not make pretty motifs on the punch cards. I thought back to my youth, seeing the music boxes in fairs and managed to connect the two concepts.”
