Play the Jacquard Loom

  • Friday 18th October - Until Sunday 19th January
Come along to our Creative Space to weave your own patterns and create your own electronic soundtrack using punch cards.

Inspired by the technology behind Kiki Smith’s tapestries, currently on show in Modern Art Oxford's I am a Wanderer exhibition, the Creative Space plays host to a Loom Computer Synthesiser created by Owl Project, allowing you to connect a loom to electronic sound.

Inspired by their 2014 Barnaby Festival commission to create a work for Paradise Mill – one of Macclesfield’s silk museums – Owl Project have created a Loom Computer Synthesiser. It simulates how the jacquard loom used punch cards to make patterned cloth, and explores what happens if you try to connect a jacquard loom to electronic sound-making technology.
