What Does Embroidery Sound Like?

The patterns found in traditional folk embroidery resemble the series of punched holes on the scrolling scores used in a hand-cranked music box. The Soundweaving project by artists Zsanett Szirmay and Bálint Tárkány-Kovács transforms the cross-stitching pattern used in folk embroidery into sound by a punch card comb music player. The punched tape acts as the score. Embroidered shirts and pillows from the Transylvanian Bukovina, and from Kalotaszeg and Hungary served as a basis for the patterns.
