If your eyes can enjoy a visual show while your ears appreciate live music, how would your skin react to a tactile composition? Touché brings to life a unique experience, expanding the music to your skin through the interpretation of a haptic performer. Touché is not about translating audio frequencies into physical vibrations - instead it offers a creative tool for perfomers and listeners to artistically eplore the long-neglected sense of touch. A family of pads can be mapped in any combination, creating a network of pulsations on your body. The performer will create an independent composition, complementing the musician and the visual artist, to create an immersive synaesthetic conert, sending vibration loops down your spine.
Touché is a current work in progress of designer and engineer Marie Tricaud. Her practice is interested in using technology to produce new creative tools, and explore alternative ways to feel, learn and interact - particularly through senses other than sight. She currently works as an innovation engineer in a corporate design lab.
