Of all the collaborations that I currently have on my plate, this is one of my favourites: I was asked by Christiaan of FM3 to design and knit Buddha Machine socks and mittens for both him and his bandmate Zhang.
It's not every day that a very cool Chinese avant-electronic duo turns up commissioning handknits. As a Buddha Machine enthusiast myself, how could I refuse?Here's the first of the socks-in-progress posed with my Buddha Machine (it's a Chan Fang.) The mitts will follow shortly.
If you'd like to experience the lo-fi joy of the Buddha Machine for yourself, as they say, there's an app for that. It's well-worth the dollar price tag to have an infinite amount of music at one's fingertips.
