This participatory performance work reveals the sound and synchronicity connected to needle working. The project invites participants into a musical knitting circle to knit in unison while creating a singular sound environment. The knitters’ needles are equipped with tiny microphones that amplifies the percussive nature of the knitting process and capture the rhythmic counterpoint of their hand movements. The installation becomes a manifestation of the participants’ collective process and a symphonic expression of the craft. Knitters and non-knitters alike are welcome to join in the knitting orchestra! All supplies are provided.
