For this performance at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Edrich, Flohr, and Tsabar explored the various physical movements and sonic possibilities from activating Work on Felt (Variation 2) and Work on Felt (Variation 11). 

Tsabar subverts our expectations of the seemingly soft sculptures by inserting carbon fiber and epoxy into felt to create a rigid hybrid material that holds its shape as it retains the tension of a piano string tethered to a guitar-tuning peg. These artworks defy the place of felt in instruments as a silencer and become the resonating chamber itself.
