It is about motion and experience of sensations. And controlling them with the body. Tightly weaved knit on the shoulders frames and gives sense of assistance. On the contrary fragile net on arms allows to sense surroundings with skin and fingertips. The bow responds to the motion and creates slightly different space for the body to note environment you are in.
Sound Embracers is a new instrument which links body movements directly to sound generation. The knitted collar with integrated stretch sensors and speakers is a surprising interface to create soundscapes. This is the result of 3 weeks workshop in collaboration with TU/e and ESDi schools.
