The Kenteverse is a multifaceted Art, Design & Music project exploring Kente’s innate power to create. I’m primarily using sounds sampled from the loom during the weaving process to generate new Kente designs and experiences.

When I started this project, I thought I was merely observing and dissecting the anatomy of Kente. I wasn’t aware of the fact that I was peering into a whole universe, The Kenteverse. Sound & Rhythm drove me here, and they’ve been my main points of contact in understanding the numerous locations within this universe. Language, History & Fashion are just some of the areas I’ve gained access to during my time here.

Reflections on Interim Presentation

After my interim presentation, I’ve taken some time to reflect on the role sound is currently playing within this project. I want to push it a bit more and squeeze more wisdom from the sound innate in Kente weaving. I’m not sure what that will look like just yet, but I’m already exploring some more.

If you are reading this right now, just know I’m super open to hearing and getting some more feedback on my project thus far.
