SOUND PERFORMANCE

Fabricmachine

Performing with Fabricmachine, Kathrin Stumreich interprets textile fabric as sound-on-film track.

Using an optical sensor, she translates the moving structure of fabric panels into a rhythmic soundscape. This installation reduces one of the earliest digital applications, the automatic industrial production of weaving patterns to a state of sensual perception. The fabrics are arranged not for their fashionable value but as notation of a multi-layered sound collage.
