Music is revealed as a new kind of interaction that enables complete new visual experiences: the fabric colour changes around the embroidery. This embroidered patch reveals how musical interaction, using new technology, enables completely new visual experiences. The fabric colour changes around the embroidery: it is the combination of aesthetic with function. The embroidery runs on software that analyses cello chords in the music and converts them into signals. The interaction happens whilst the cello is playing.
