“Electronic Guy”

Electroacoustic tuxedo jacket with sampler, electric guitar, radio receiver and solar cell. Originally built in 1987 for the mayor of Berlin, but now in Roja the jacket has a prerecorded cassette of me saying ”Roja ha, ha…” .

In 1995 I created the Electronic Guy wearing a similar Tuxedo that was equipped with guitar amp, radio receiver, and sampler. Sounds are sampled and then mixed through the jacket as a solo concert event. In 2011 redesigned it as a “Boom Jacket” complete with sampler, looping and pitching devices, radio, guitar amp and double light-to-frequency controller.
