The launch event saw TFRC members create a collaborative artwork together with David Littler of Sampler-Culture Clash. We sat together as a group drawing onto a very long piece of grid paper, which was then punched with holes. The paper was then fed through a wind up machine that created delicate sounds that were mixed and sampled to create what we called 'textile music'.
David had even developed a play list of songs that have a textile theme - see the list here.
Looking back on that small action, it says alot about the nature of collaboration - true collaboration, where people are able to bring their diverse skills and interests to meet at a point and create something better together takes a huge amount of trust and willingness to try things differently. Most importantly, it takes time, and TFRC is really only at the beginnings of this journey.
