Wear what you hear...

Sounds.Butter is my new favorite people.

Sound as artifact is such a fraught arena, because there's really no limits to what can be done, considering the impossibility of really capturing solid audio. Digital forms exacerbate this; it gets closer in proximity, but lacks the elegance of a wave. Using the sewing machine, which operates on its own pattern creation, turned into a speaker, or an oscilloscope, is really pretty ingenious. And sartorializing audio certainly makes you reconsider the vestigial trappings that really are rather arbitrary compared to the wave form's fidelity to the original.
