The Fashion Sound House

The Fashion Sound House was a large-scale installation work that was staged as part of the 2004 Next Wave Festival in Melbourne. The work was billed as ‘a meeting place of art and life, isolation and public exposure, fashion, sound and good home cooking’. The work brought together, through collaboration, the creative talents of director/designer Jessie Willow Tucker, composer Anthony Lyons and multimedia designer Kate Tucker.

A ‘living’ installation piece that fused costume/fashion design, sound composition, web design and performance, the Fashion Sound House was an immersive experience that was held in a large gallery space in Melbourne. The space was populated with costumed performers and distinctly constructed domestic spaces were created, each with it’s own unique looped soundscape. People were free to wander through the five rooms at their own leisure while performers were stuck in loops of domestic activity.
