This collection of samples are based around the similarities in production of woven textiles and music. I worked closely with a music student to collect a reaction to drawings through the medium of music production. The music student worked from drawings that derived from popular music. I had a group of people who respond to the popular music to create drawings as starting point that we could work from. I purposely tried to pick out brighter and bolder colours that people can draw with because I would have to stick to that. I still however found a way to pick out the lighter colours.  The drawings that were produced are very large and I found it hard to create fabric that replicated the drawings as a whole. To make the process easier I took photographs of the sections which again was limiting when weaving.

In this project I wanted to push my self in my weaving a colour choices. Im really bad a going out of my own colour comfort zone when it comes to weaving. I gravitate towards lighter colours and thin delicate yarns. I am like this because I know how to control those types of yarn and it works well with what I want to achieve in my head.
