TBWB Cymatic T-shirts

Introducing the first in a series of bold, singular shirt designs by sound artists, based on visual interpretations of sound and selected by Thomas Bey William Bailey. The first design in this series, by the curator himself, is based on vector imagery inspired by Hans Jenny’s experiments with “cymatics“: a radical means of sculpting matter with electronic tone generators. A subtly placed Japanese ‘waveform’ text anchors the chaotic design in place.

This unique 3-color design (black, purple, fuschia) is printed on high quality “sand”-colored Tultex t-shirts (100% ring-spun cotton), available in sizes  S, M, L  (a separate version for girls’ fashion tees is also in the works.) Each shirt also comes with a tag bearing its individual number (no more than 75 pieces available in this initial run), and Thomas’ personal rubber stamp on special texturized ‘op-art’ paper.

    Named after the Brian De Palma film about the intimacy and invasive nature of sound recording (in his case a metaphor for filmmaking), this EP finds Toronto’s VOWLS eavesdropping on Pop music. The a-side Burlap swaggers around a drum machine beat that sounds like a New Order 45 played at 33rpm, with thick psychedelic layers […]

  • VOWLS Plays Monterey Pop (Remastered)
    March 25, 2011 | 11:27 am

      About the Film Inspired by Ron Hardy’s disco re-edits, Michael Marranda’s revised literary texts and Richard Prince’s appropriated photographs, this video is composed entirely from footage taken from D.A. Pennebaker’s documentary on the 1967 Monterey Pop music festival. Instead of using the iconic footage of the performances, VOWLS chose to focus on the audience, […]
