"I put my ear to the engine block and actually heard the delicate, little voices of women singing somewhere deep in the transmission."
-Thomas Bayrle

Recorded in a textile weaving factory in Schwalmstadt Trutzhain, Germany, WARP WEFT is a collaborative sound work by Frankfurt-based artists Thomas Bayrle and Bernhard Schreiner.

The LP consists of three audio pieces, each made using multiple in-sync microphones that were focused on a specific historical machine; a Dornier rapier loom from the 1980's; a Hacoba weft winding machine from the 1950's; and a loom with shuttles, equipped with a jacquard attachment from the late 1940's, notable for its importance in the development of programmable machines pivotal to early computing.

In 1958 Bayrle apprenticed at a weaving factory, a formative experience that continues to inspire his practice today. Bayrle recalls that, "the sound from the looms was often more important than what they produced."
