knitting your voice

how great is that !
Magdalena Kohler and Hanna Wiesener created this installation/machine called gelsomnia that records your voice and knitts the waveforms of the sound on a knitting-machine.

its similar to that project:
Mahir M. Yavuz and Ebru Kurbak, students at Kunstuniversität Linz, have created Newsknitter, a process through which headlines are transformed into beautiful patterns on unique sweaters.
they write:
"News Knitter converts information gathered from the daily political news into clothing. Live news feed from the Internet that is broadcasted within 24 hours or a particular period is analyzed, filtered and converted into a unique visual pattern for a knitted sweater. The system consists of two different types of software: whereas one receives the content from live feeds the other converts it into visual patterns, and a fully computerized flat knitting machine produces the final output. Each product, sweater of News Knitter is an evidence/result of a specific day or period." more info here

my friend cdrk from syrphe-records finished (hm, it will never really be finished, i guess) and published his amazing database of experimental, noise, electronic, improvised music from Africa and Asia. wow, you did great work man!
