It is now quite common to see visual projections at music concerts, with visuals that react to, represent and compliment the music. This reactive performance dress is an alternative visual representation of the music as it responds to changes in sound by changing colour. The short clip presented here was recorded at Miriam Ingram's gig in Whelan's, Camden Street, Dublin on 30th August, 2004.

This dress was designed especially for Miriam Ingram to mark the special occasion of her finishing the album 'Trampoline'. The skirt of the dress has a number of layers that change visual attributes, as the music changes.

The story behind the creation of the dress is that Miriam had come along to the exhibition of Urban Chameleon (kakirine.com/chameleon/) in Exhibit 3 @ the Digital Hub, 2003. She liked the Urban Chameleon skirts and said that she'd love to wear one. So, as they were made only for exhibition, this dress was made especially for her and this performance.

The electronics were done by the wonderful Owen Drumm. Thanks for you sir!
