Originally published in Ragtrader

Music & fashion combine

25 Nov 2011
A retail innovation centred around interactive fabrics that create music proved a big hit in Melbourne.

Pop-up store and fashion label, Where Lovers Lie, teamed up with sonic branding experts, the Amber Theatre, as part of Melbourne Music Week.

They then combined the mediums of music and fashion to create an interactive musical instrument controlled by smart textiles.

Sound – Light – Action

I’m  not sure if the interaction of sound and colour quite hits the mark – simplifying the colour and animations would help in creating more obvious connections between the sound and light – but the willingness of the crowd to participate is really inspiring.

The use of human voice is really refreshing and personalises the experience.

The means now exist to create amazing brand experiences by connecting the emotional expression of sound to the benefits and personality of your brand, in  real- time interactive environments.

Imagine this happening in front of your stores…. powerful stuff.

“People with voices of different frequencies, rhythms or cadences will be able to evoke quite different magical patterns upon the surface of... read more
