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.

Rhythm is essential in almost everything we do. Understanding the role rhythm plays in our everyday endeavors will help us be somewhat more attentive to it. Through this, we will build awareness around how to use rhythm to create in different ways.

The more we are intuned with the rhythms around us, the more we can figure out how to use it. Even our bodies are intuned with specific rhythms, how about getting more in touch with that?
