Art and design group Hypercomf (Paola Palavidi and Ioannis Koliopoulos) is engaging the community of the island of Tinos in a project aimed at reviving forgotten folk song and tapestry weaving traditions. Hypercomf is recording old Tinian melodies through interviews with locals and using sonification software to translate elements of Tinos’s landscape and architecture into sound. The collected sound data is then being transformed into patterns woven into a wall tapestry. For this final phase, Hypercomf is collaborating with the Museum of the Sorority of Saint Ursula and the Technical Women’s School of Tinos.
In the summer of 2020, SNFPHI summer grantee and recent Ph.D. recipient in Music Stylianos Dimou is designing an interactive sonic wall installation to supplement Resonate. This installation facilitates tactile engagement with sounds and creates an immersive audiovisual environment tailored specifically to Hypercomf’s project.
