What would it be like to be a string that made music? Not anything simple, like a guitar string, or a cello string, but a magical string, a sine curve that’s taut, then loose’ that doubles, then doubles again, that sheds, then dissolves into showers of notes — a flaming, sighing, looping, dissolving string. Curious?

That’s what we’ve got here, from New York’s School of Visual Arts grad student Daniel Sierra. This is his masters’ thesis. This is music as you might imagine it in a magical laboratory under a magical microscope. Really close in.

Happy Weekend.
