I become the suit man

Paul Moeller from Technomania circus shot this great example of a suit composition.  This one is called, "wired". Watching this video shows an interesting compositional approach that the "suit idea" is best suited for (questionable puns notwithstanding).  It is the following cyclical relationship as composition generator: 

 The movement of the player causes the sound, then the sound influences the movement of the player, the movement of the player causes the sound, then the sound influences the movement of the player, etc. 

The player in this video is tightly linked to the sound and the sound is tightly linked to the actions of the player. 

It is that relationship that my work with the suit is exploring. 
The post called  "Watching musicians with great listening ability" is about a similar effect I found when I saw "Road Work Ahead". 

Thanks Paul!
