PROJECTS Svar Vastra

Svar Vastra is an interactive garment intended to develop interest for Indian Classical music in children through color and play. The idea is to create an assistive aid (smart garment) to develop social skills and emotional expression in children of autism through play.

Svar Vastra is a sweatshirt that produces the first to the last note of 'swaras' in Indian Classical Music according to the ascent in the height of the jump a child undertakes. It is accompanied by a glowing light- a different colour for every note based on the representative colour of the Indian Gods for each colour. The music covered are Shuddh Swara, Alankars, Komal Swara and Saptak.
