    Participative Performance
    Striped Shirtsizer

    The striped-pattern noise generated when the TV audio jack is accidentally inserted into the video socket. Conversely, can you get audio out of another striped pattern, a horizontally striped shirt? Can you perform music on clothes? The musical instrumentation generated from such imaginings.
    Connecting the video signal from a video camera directly to the audio socket.
    In this performance a horizontally striped shirt is moved about in front of a camera to alter the sound.
    If you're wearing a horizontally striped shirt, you're wearing sound!
