Symbiotic Sound


Many technological relationships define human-centered as productive. However, the simplicity of touch can often overshadow the sacred and evolving life of the artifact.

This radio demands the care of the listener, a symbiotic relationship with sound.

By blowing into the mouthpiece, the radio’s static irregularity is soothed into focus. Covering the finger holes nudges station tuning.
