Soundweaving Melodies

I found this interesting project on one of my favourite websites, Colossal. (thisiscolossal.com)

Soundweaving is a recent project by Hungarian design student Zsanett Szirmay that turns patterns used in traditional folk embroidery into music by translating them into laser-cut punch cards fed through a custom music box. The project was partially inspired by actual paper cards used in some weaving looms to easily reproduce patterns for various textiles. Szirmay collaborated with musician and composer Bálint Tárkány-Kovács who helped with audio mapping and the development of each track.

A Card from Overseas

I arrived back in the studio today after my Christmas break to find a lovely card from relatives in Lithuania. How great are those stamps!

This year Lithuania will begin using the Euro as currency ensuring greater economic stability and trading options with European countries. A giant leap for a country of only 3 million people.
