at Johns Hopkins
See and hear musical clothes in action when acoustical artist Benoit Maubrey performs at 7 p.m., Monday, Nov. 21, in Room 101 of the Mattin Center on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.
Maubrey is the director of Die Audio Gruppe, a Berlin-based art group that builds and performs with electronic clothes and dresses that make sounds when they interact with their environment, thanks to light sensors and other electronic instruments built into the garments. Light, movement and other inputs are orchestrated into musical compositions on the spot. Maubrey and Die Audio Gruppe were the winners of the 2006 Franklin Furnace award for performance artists. More details and photos are available online at home.snafu.de/maubrey/.
Maubrey will present a brief performance, explain the technology behind the art, and allow participants to try out some of the sensors and clothing themselves. The event is free and open to the public. The Johns Hopkins University Digital Media Center is sponsoring the event. For information, call 410-516-3817 or visit digitalmedia.jhu.edu.
