This is a functional demo of the sensors of textile designer Lara Grant’s Ruffletron, a wearable musical interface. The Ruffletron is a prototype of a wearable musical interface and an experiment in performative interaction. The project was created in collaboration with Cullen Miller.
Textile designer Lara Grant is giving ‘soft synths’ a new meaning. This soft interface is made from metallic wools, Velostat (a resistive material), conductive fabrics, sheep’s wool and acrylic craft felt. It is connected to the circuit with snaps soldered to wires and alligator clips.
