[ TONSTICH ]  :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::  audio / video performance
                                                                                                                                        [ TONSTICH ] is an audio/video project based on the creation of a sonorous dress. In [ TONSTICH ] basic sound parameters - Attack Decay Sustain Release are directly related to the dress construction parameters X and Y (length | width). The characteristics of the shape, fit and look of this imaginary dress are determined by the audio composition, following the  strict manufacturing schedule of each production unit, the dress is initially modelled by the industrial production process yet continuously modified by the listener’s  individual sonorous experience.

The audio material used for the composition of [ TONSTICH ] is the authentic sound recorded in industrial manufacturing facilities of garments and textiles. Single noise patterns from the bartack machine mixed with the humming of the 2 needle machine weave in combination with electronic structures a fit sound fabric. The audio/video performance  [ TONSTICH ] progresses in 6 movements, each one representing a development stage of this unique creation proposed by Amelie Duchow.
