"Soundstitching is an interdisciplinary, multimedia project that transforms color from a hand-stitched image into a musical composition that can be interpreted by a musician and/or performance artist. The result is an organic combination of three forms of art into one collaborative, multisensory experience."

I have used the piano as a tool to perform the original music composition. I do not consider myself a musician, as I am not classically trained. I am interested in creating a dialogue between two different forms of art, by translating color into sound that is inspired by familiar imagery.
The project allows me to communicate through an experimental approach to creating visual and performing art, as I work through the process of composing music through a hand-stitched image. Soundstitching provides a multiple media platform that unifies visual art and music.
