Roux Whisk

Recorded in July 2015 in Vienna (AT)

The Roux Whisk is a wearable antenna receiver which picks up electromagnetic fields from its surroundings and translate them into audible sound. It is part of a series of costume receivers made for ‘Magnetoceptia’, a collaborative project by Patrizia Ruthensteiner and Dewi de Vree.
The Roux Whisk, inspired by the shape of the historical Medici Ruff and constructed from bended hazlenut rods,
is a stereo Antenna Receiver which includes two different patterns woven into the basic structure of the costume.
