I am currently creating wearables for musicians to wear during their performances or for their music videos. This piece in particular is a headdress that reacts to sound. So far I have made 2 iterations.
The image above is the first iteration of the Reo Headdress. I created it for Emily Reo’s music video “Metal on the Skin”. This piece does not react to sound. I used EL wire for the lighting.
I braided Emily’s hair and pulled it through the arches of the headdress to make it seem as if the headdress were an extension of her.
I am still working on the 2nd iteration of the Reo Headdress (images above). This one incorporates pyramids along with arches. I am using a microphone to capture the levels of sound to control the RGB LED ropes.
