For Carolina Oneto, constructing a quilt using the composition of a song was one of her dream projects, and as an engineer, she created the formula to make it happen. She invented a mathematical model in which every musical note had a color quality. With this formula, she completed her quilt, 64, based on the Beatles’ song, “When I’m Sixty-Four”— her wedding song. Each block of the quilt represented a song compass, and each color modeled a note; each line’s width was the length of the note, and the black in the quilt represented silence within the song. “I studied the flute and musical theory at a conservatory for more than five years,” said Oneto. “I believe our identity is reflected in everything we create— a mirror of our memories, experiences, being.” – MQG Member Spotlight
