Kenteverse [First Cut]

Kenteverse is a multifaceted art, design, and music project exploring the innate power of Kente to create. I primarily use sounds sampled from the loom during the weaving process to generate new Kente designs and experiences.  

My research has involved a handful of disciplines such as language, history and, fashion in figuring out the role rhythm plays in the final results of their given tasks.

Kenteverse is about finding ways to visualize rhythm and see how it plays a role or not in several creative processes. During this time, I also reverse engineered this process to see if I could create sounds that could become mediators and creators of visuals specifically for patterns and cloths such as Kente.
