(Collaboration with Samantha Calvetti)
The "Fiber Synth” is an instrument made from a fabric weaving intwined with an analog synthesizer. The sounds it generates is based on the weaving’s pattern and controlled by electronic components woven into each instrument.

T.E.S.T. (tom erin sam together) is a project merging sam and tom’s fiber synths with erin’s microsound project. For this project we created a series of micro fiber synths, small versions of our initial design, for erin to play and interact with using her microscopic camera. For more information and photos see my blog post on the project here.
