Artist Statement:


    Since 1983 Benoit Maubrey and his international AUDIO GRUPPE have been building electro-acoustic clothing and suits. These are clothes equipped with loudspeakers, amplifiers, and 257 K samplers that enable them to react directly with their environment by recording live sounds, voices, or instruments in their proximity, and amplifying them as a mobile and multi-acoustic performance. Additionally they also “wear” radio receivers, contact microphones, light sensors and electronic looping devices in order to produce, mix, and multiply their own sounds and compose these as an environmental concert. The performers are also use rechargeable batteries and/or solar cells which ensures them complete mobility both indoors and outdoors.
