Audible sound piece constructed with nothing but clothing built for the human body.
Outerwear-- Coat (pockets with keys on lanyard), scarf, flip-gloves/mittens, jeans, heavy untied/zipped snow boots.
Attach contact microphone to each hand so that the sensitive plate is facing out & halfway under where the mitten-flip would be. The gain for these would be about 30-35% of the other contact mics.
One contact mic on outside of key pocket, one on the interior of the in-side portion of a pants leg (doesn't matter which side) at about calf level.
With hands in pockets, march in place with a steady rhythm (rhythm breaks down as performance progresses).
After 10-15 seconds, take hands out of pockets and flip a mitten open, run palm over backs of hand, up arm, over shoulders, unwind scarf and run hand down to stomach to other mitten and repeat.
Stop marching rock on the balls of the feet-- one at a time, together, there should be no particular pattern while brushing off all clothing for about 10 seconds.
Stomp boots flat footed, tap toes on the ground behind and jump up and down flat-footed.
