combining old headphones with an electronic guitar, ‘guitar ear-o’ seeks to give industrial waste products their original purpose back. reusing industrial waste from valuable music instruments that are thrown away due to small defects, the items are turned into a set of new headphones. the guitar’s fingerboard is transformed into the connecting strap between the two speakers, and the covers for the speakers are made out of the guitar body with remnants of the gloss paint still left on them. based on modular pieces, the guitar ear-o is a new way for old instruments to live a life in a different shape, but with keeping the same function, to play music.
