A textile as an electronic instrument.
The artist, especially for this performance, created a flexible and modular interface of electronic textiles consisting mainly of snap fasteners to make all parts freely movable. CoinB, the artist’s alter-ego, is a version of the artist dressed in cutty, which aesthetically is the opposite of her performance. The show’s dramaturgy is divided into three sections, beginning with soft experimental sound representing the green and light side of the forest. The second part is the transition from the light side to the dark side, followed by the last part, where the music escalates to speedcore bpms.
