Pulsewidth’S Felt Mini Synthesizers Make Soft, Squishy Music

by Paul Strauss

When I think of old school analog synthesizers, I think of hard plastic, wood and metal cases, and plenty of knobs, switches and wires. Not so says this crafter, who’s made up this batch of awesomely soft synthesizers.

Brisbane Australia textile artist pulsewidth has created these miniature versions of classic synthesizers from throughout the ages. Each tiny fabric synth is handcrafted from felt, cotton, embroidery thread, wool stuffing and embellished with tiny metal brads for the knobs. My personal favorite has to be the Mini Minimoog:

The most amazing thing is that pulsewidth’s intricate fabric creations measure in around just 3 to 5 inches wide and about 2 to 2.5 inches deep. That’s sure some precise sewing needed to get this level of detail.

From the Juno 106 to the Arp Odyssey and the Korg MS-20, why not pick up a whole bunch and make your own mini-Kraftwerk or Tangerine Dream? Have a favorite musical instrument? pulsewidth would be happy to make a custom mini version for you too. Me, I’d like a felt Yamaha DX-7.

There are a variety of mini synthesizers for you to peruse over at pulsewidth’s Etsy shop all priced at $65 (USD). Be sure to check out her entire collection of wondrous felt creations over on Flickr.
