Liminal Lines (2022)
for self-built PVC dress, speaker cables, body movements and electronics

Liminal Lines is the development for the project “Between the Lines”. It is a live electronic music performance by Viola Yip on her self-made wearable instrument and her body movements. It explores a choreography between sound and movements, beyond the traditional notions of techniques and executions.

This wearable instrument, in the form of a dress, is made of various audio cables that allows audio signals to pass through. Her body, when wearing the dress, facilitates a wide range of distances, pressures, and speeds through her body movements. These body-and-instrument interactions devise performative relationships between the instrument and the human body, which allow complex sonorities to emerge and modulate over time.
