Das MONSTERFRAU Sensorenkostüm

5 Neigungssensoren, 1 Endlospotentiometer, 3 Taster und 3 Pads sind mit elastischen Bändern am Körper befestigt.

Das Sensorenkostüm wurde für die sci-fi Techno Oper 'Tek Mater' entwickelt, welche MONSTERFRAU gemeinsam mit dem Tekno-Musiker Crystal Distortion im November 2017 in Koproduktion mit dem brut-Theater in der Grellen Forelle in Wien uraufgeführt hat.

In front we see an electron machinedrum which would be controlled by a multitude of buttons, faders and potentiometers on the synthesizersuit's front

In the backround we see a flatscreen showing videos of MONSTERFRAU's with her playing the Synthesizersuit during her live-performances 'MONSTERFRAU against Marduk', 'MONSTERFRAU opening act for Die Goldenen Zitronen' and other shows.

MONSTERFRAU Synthesizersuit ausgestellt im Technischen Museum in Wien aus der Luftperspektive von Mitja Kobal photographiert. Die Installation besteht aus dem Synthesizersuit alias Soundkostüm in einer Vitrine und dem technischen Zubehör in einer anderen Vitrine. Das technische Zubehör inkludiert Midi- und AKG-Empfänger sowie ein ThinkPad-Laptop samt Max.msp - Patch zur Umrechnung der Midi-Daten zur Bedienung einer elektron machinedrum. Ein Mackie Mischpult mischt letztlich den Sound von der Machinedrum, 2 Subtle Noisemakern und des Mikrophons.

Der MONSTERFRAU Synthesizersuit

Der Synthesizersuit ist jetzt Teil der Sammlung tragbarer Technologien des Technischen Museums Österreichs in Wien.

Hier trägt MONSTERFRAU zwei analoge Subtle Noisemaker und die Steuerung ihrer Machinedrum samt Fader, Drehregler und Taster auf ihrer Haut.

Der Synthesizersuit wurde 2013 für die Underground Opera "MONSTERFRAU gegen Marduk" entwickelt und beim Donaufestival Krems uraufgeführt.
