This paper presents a methodology for data extraction and sound production derived from cloth that prompts “improvised play” rather than rigid interaction metaphors based on preexisting cognitive models. The re- search described in this paper is a part of a larger effort to uncover the possibilities of using sound to prompt emergent play behavior with pliable materials. This particular account documents the inter-activation of a stretched elastic cloth with an integrated sensor array called the “Blanket”.
