Fashioning the Voice

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

Fashioning the Voice is an interdisciplinary research project that brings together the expertise of Yvon Bonenfant an artist-academic who extends voice across media to explore innovative ways of creating (University College, Cork); Dr. Tychonas Michailidis, who’s work focuses on sensor technology and interactions (Research Fellow at Solent University) and myself.
Fashioning the Voice emerged from a starting point of exploring the connections between fashioning the body and fashioning the voice. The body is a site of construction and communication, both dressing and speaking are situated bodily practices that allow the individual to stylise themselves, to make them selves distinct and to respond to their environment. Using a range of sensors that gather data from the wearer Fashioning the Voice seeks to mix and entwine styling the body and styling the voice through (at this stage a prototype) trench coat that literally sings in response to the wearer. The live art project outcome articulates a vision for an immersive, participatory experience, that entices individuals into exploring the relationship between how we fashion ourselves, stage ourselves, and glory in the dramatic amplification of the fashioned self across sensory registers.
My research interests in this project are concerned with the sensory experience of wearing the trench coat drawing upon the field of affect studies by focusing upon the “practical experience of the clothed body in space” (Ruggerone, 577:2016). I am investigating how this coat affects the wearer, how in the experience of being clothed in this singing coat their focus might shift from what the body is, to what the body does and the feelings that engenders. Our stylistic and physical interactions with the coat such as popping the collar, pushing up the sleeves, tightening the belt can connect to vocal styling through the technology embedded in the coat.
