Beatwoven: The Fabric of Sound

Textile producer, here Beatwoven, recuperation developed software with a music producer which translates sound and music in to pixels that serve as a visual language of sound. Beatwoven Founder, allergy Nadia-Anne Ricketts, a professional dancer and weaver, saw a link between music, her loom and the patterns created by music and textiles independently and sought to fuse the two. The geometric imagery is then woven to develop high end fabric utilized in interiors as pillows and upholstery fabric. By looking in to the history of the music, the genre and the artist, Ricketts determines colour and textures. The cloth is woven in a silk weaving mill in England.
