Benoît Maubrey

Video Peacock

An Audio Peacock costume made from white plexiglass is used as a mobile projection screen. In this audio-visual performance the electro-acoustic quality of a Peacock is visually enhanced via a video projector. Video-taped images are projected simultaneously to the sounds on the costume. In a more spectacular sense the Peacock’s own real-time image can be projected live onto its costume as a form of “video-feedback”. Additionally its own voice and sounds can be used to manipulate the projected images: in effect the Peacock “wears” its own sound.


In 1975 Maubrey earned his Bachelor of Arts from Georgetown University. He has lived in the Berlin area since 1980. Since 1985, Benoit has presented performances at international festivals and conferences, such as ARS ELECTRONICA, (Linz, Austria), ISEA (Chicago, Sydney, Helsinki), Intercommunication Center NTT- ICC (Tokyo), SONAMBIENTE 1996 and various events in Berlin. Benoît Maubrey is the director of DIE AUDIO GRUPPE a Berlin-based art group that build and perform with electronic clothes. Audio Gruppe creates mobile and multi-acoustic sculptures in public spaces.
