After all, it’s all math…

Things that look pretty will often sound pretty, too.

Including traditional Hungarian embroidery.

Zsanett Szirmay’s latest project, Soundweaving, translates patterns from Eastern European embroidery into gentle, tinkling melodies. By translating the motifs from pillows and folk costumes to punch cards, and then running those punch cards through a hand-cranked music box, Szirmay finds the music that’s effectively been trapped in the textiles all along.
