FIT TO BE TIED: When you can say that your necktie was woven from 50 percent audio cassette tape and can actually be played, it’s unusual that anyone will be able to say “yes, mine too.” That’s the situation with the Sonic Fabric Neckties, crafted from half cassette tape, half thread and – get this- they are actually audible. The sound collages are recorded onto the tape that is made into the ties, and the sound is based on looped and layered samples collected on and under the streets of nyc. Don’t believe it? You can hear a demo here. GET IT: $120; Online at Supermarket.
