Membranes: A sensory artwork made of interactive leathers
“Membranes” is an hybridization between natural element and digital technology.
«Membranes» is a sensory interactive artwork made with leathers.
It’s possible to interact alone or together on both sides. The leathers react to the electrostatic contacts of the human body. Each contact produces scalable sounds, depending on the quality of the approach and depth of the contact.
The two skin surfaces are both composed of a polyphonic sensitive score. They are separated by an interstice, which is reduced under the action of the contact. This work plays with degrees of proximity, intimacy between two leathers, and between two bodies which interact together. It is an invitation to a musical proximity. It allows to be listener and sensitive to an other visitor which interacts in order to create, to experiment sounds produced together.
These skins produce sounds when the audience slowly or strongly touch. The sound textures evolve according to the quality of gestures and touches from the public.
For this hybrid instrument, the leather keeps the natural shape of the animal: neck, front and hind legs in order to produce a singular mirror to the body. The skin of humans as the animal meet, approach and play a musical proximity. The skin also becomes a medium, an intermediary who draws a sensitive meeting between several people who interact on both sides.
