Benoît Maubrey is the director of DIE AUDIO GRUPPE a Berlin-based art group that build and perform 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.
In the more recent AUDIO PEACOCKS project performers wear electroacoustic instruments shaped into a peacock’s fan-like plumage that is highly directional -- projecting the sound into a space like an oversized radar dish.
As VIDEO PEACOCK (wearing white plexiglass "skins“) these electroacoustic birds patrol a more limited space and darkened environment. Their audio costumes double as mobile projection screens: whenever their paths intersect the light of a video projector the costumes metamorphasize into multi-colored screens. Colorful visualizations (movies, pictures, texts, internet blogs, computer-enhanced images and closed circuit camera views) are "beamed“ onto them as they play their sounds. As a multi-phonic installation the parcours of these "cyber-birds“ is choreographed vis-a-vis to the emplacement of the projectors in the architectural space.
