This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it Website Sonic Fabric is woven from 50% recorded audio cassette tape and 50% polyester thread.
The invention of Sonic Fabric was inspired by the use of small strands of cassette tape use as wind indicators, or "tell-tails", used on sailboats, and by Tibetan Buddhist prayer flags inscribed with wind-activated blessings. In addition to the "Sonic Shaman-Super-hero" garments, Alyce also creates Sonic Fabric banners, scrolls, and strings of nautical-style flags.
Sonic Fabric is not only strikingly beautiful and durable, it is also audible: the sounds contained in the weave can be revealed by drawing a tape head over its surface. It has the texture and feel of a light canvas with a mysterious sheen. In addition to being incorporated into the conceptual artworks of its inventor Alyce Santora, Sonic Fabric also functions in a wide range of interior and fashion design.
Sonic Fabric is woven at a family run textile mill in New England. All of our sewing is done by hand in New York City. Yardage in several solids colors is available for shipping immediately.
