Sunday Synth Jam: Benoît Maubrey is the director of Die Audio Gruppe, a Berlin-based art group that builds and performs with electronic clothes.
Basically these are electro-acoustic clothes and dresses (equipped with amplifiers and loudspeakers) that make sounds by interacting thematically and acoustically with their environment. For example the Audio Ballerinas use — among other electronic instruments– light sensors that enable them to produce sounds through the interaction of their movements and the surrounding light.
Via movement sensors, they can trigger electronic sounds that are subsequently choreographed –or “orchestrated”– into musical compositions as an “audio ballet “.
