Heavily involved in, and influenced by the ’90s underground German club scene, Amelie Duchow’s love for electronic music led her into developing her own particular style of music. She later moved to Italy, signing with Pistoia based electronic music label Suite Inc, soon joining forces with media artist Marco Monfardini – the pair later launched their audio/video project Schnitt to explore the transitional area between music, art and science. Duchow’s own AV project Tonstich has been performed across Europe.
Tonstitch is an audiovisual project based on the creation of a ‘sonorous’ dress. Basic sound parameters relate directly to the dresses construction in the X and Y axis and the characteristics of the shape, the fit and look of this imaginary dress are determined by the audio composition. Following the strict manufacturing schedule of each production unit the dress is initially modelled by the industrial production process. An individual sonorous experience, the audio material used for the composition is authentic sound recordings from industrial manufacturing facilities of garments and textiles.
