  Work Details  
  In this case a new Audio Uniform , based on the design of a ballerinas tutu, was built using solar cells to power the electronics. At the same time digital-memories (257 K samplers) were used instead of cassette players: this permits the performers to record live sounds from around them. Electronic looping devices, light sensors, radio wave receivers are also included on the plexiglas surfaces of the tutus: in the end the Audio Ballerinas were able to create an entire spectrum of sounds via their clothing.
