Sound Lockets

A ribbon of sounds contained in a necklace made from cassette tape, steel, and silk. Each pendant holds a song on a tightly wound cassette tape that was made especially for this project by soundmakers from around the world. The hand-dyed silk cord is adjustable in length and is color specific to each song. The unisex necklace comes packaged in a soft pouch within a larger box that includes a CD of all 5 tracks created for this collaboration. The CD design is also a collective effort, with each musician contributing a ring of their own artwork. Listen to samples of each track to find your favorite, or collect them all.
