CalArts Alumnus Jeff Bryant's Piano-Playing Scarf Doesn't Seem Real (video)

July 4, 2012
Huffington Post

Composer Jeff Bryant's push_push project, developed for a graduate course at the California Institute of the Arts, realizes a wish we didn't even know we had. By knitting a scarf through with conductive wire, Bryant was able to establish a link with a Disklavier automatic piano, creating in effect a piano-playing scarf. It's all done wirelessly, so twisting the scarf five feet from the keys still triggers a series of plunks. Read story

By weaving conductive thread into the yarn, Bryant found that he could manipulate the fiber to control a musical instrument — a decidedly non-boring outcome.  Read story
