When I began exploring the relationship between developments in digital technologies, music and old crafts such as weaving - fascinating arithmetic connections revealed themselves.
BeatWoven® is a multi-award winning digital textiles label. As a client you can select digital music or sound (MP3) that founding artist Nadia-Anne Ricketts translates, using specially designed BeatWoven audio technology, into luxury bespoke woven pieces for use in interior spaces.
After a successful career as a professional dancer, Nadia studied at Central Saint Martins. In the hope of creating a lifestyle fusion between music and fashion, she began exploring the relationship between the developments in digital technologies, music and old crafts such as weaving. Fascinating arithmetic connections revealed themselves between music, fabric construction and code; the binary system that underpins the weave structure, and it’s relationship with digital communication and sound.
It was clear digital music & sound could be woven into cloth that can be worn, hung, upholstered or tailored into art pieces. In 2009 BeatWoven® and ‘The Fabrics of Sound’ were born.
