Embossed Sounds

Technology and music design for live fashion performance
- In collaboration with Luc van Weelden

“Fascinated by the relationship and potential porosity between the senses, Iris van herpen presented clothes that generate sounds by touch.”

‘Embossed Sounds’ is the name of her orchestra of human touch which explore garments as electronic instruments that one can touch and play. By touching the clothes, music is sculpted live by the models for their audience in an intimate performance.
