We’ve enjoyed Rebaroque’s mesh of custom art work with speakers in the past, but now they are taking it to the next level. Launching at Scope New York Art Fair on March 2nd, Rebecca Paul and Mikal Hameed have teamed up with curator Lori Zimmer to create some incredibly bold designs for the Rebaroque Artist Series.

Rebaroque sound frames are luxe pieces of custom art, upcycled from vintage frames and remnant fabric, and customized with Pyle speakers and hand detailing. Each functions as a piece of design art- and hooks up to your smart device to play your favorite music. The Anew series delves even further into the art realm, as each artist has created a piece which has then been turned into a sound frame.

Slated for showing at the Scope Art Fair, Rebaroque will have a sound wall, meshing the new fine art pieces with a curated playlist. Artists include Beau Stanton, Claw Money, Cycle, Ellis G, Gaia, Ian Kuali’i, Jim Avignon, Jon Burgerman, Jonathan Viner,M11X, Martin Wittfooth, Mr. Kiji, Nathan Pickett, Orlando Reyes, ROSTARR x Madluv, Ryan Bradley, Sharktoof, Tara McPherson and Vesta.

In addition, they’ve asked some of their favorite artists, musicians and publications to put together the sounds and songs that inspire them, including Gogol Bordello, DJ DB’s BLURRRing Radio, Kid Zoom, DJs Ole Koretsky and Andy Rourke of The Smiths, jazz musician Brian Newman, pop culture blog The World’s Best Ever, which will be playing during the fair.
