about

Memory quilts are made by collecting meaningful pieces of fabric from one or more individuals, cutting the fabric to conform to a specific pattern, and finally, binding them together with thread to create a cozy blanket. A sonic memory quilt is created by collecting stories from many individuals and fastens them together through music or other sound creation devices.

Recorded live on October 1, 2015 at The Carter Woodson Museum of African American History in St. Petersburg, Florida. Funding for this sound installation was made possible by the Saint Petersburg Arts Alliance and the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs.
