Phish Drummer's Recycled Dress on Display

Boston – Drummer Jon Fishman’s offbeat “sonic rhythm dress” – which is stitched together from recycled cassette tapes – is going on display at a museum this month.

The dress commissioned by Fishman, of the enormously popular jam band Phish, is going on display at Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, The Boston Globe reported in Thursday’s editions.

The dress includes sound collages of some of Fishman’s favorite artists. The bodice includes Jimi Hendrix, Sun Ra, Led Zeppelin and Prince, the newspaper reported. The fabric retains its magnetism and emits a sound when rubbed with a tape head.

The dress was commissioned by the Vermont rocker and designed by New York artist Alyce Santoro.

Phish, which has broken up, experimented with myriad musical genres. The band’s legions of dedicated fans made them a younger version of The Grateful Dead.
