Avoid Being Eaten By Mimicking Other Less Palatable Species (ABEMOLPAS) began with the idea to apply a process called ‘stochastic resonance’ to sound transformation. Stochastic resonance is a phenomenon where, under the correct circumstances, noise can boost week signals instead of drowning them. This seemed an interesting way to explore the morphology between camouflaged and clear sound materials. In Avoid Being Eaten By Mimicking Other Less Palatable Species (ABEMOLPAS) cuddly farm animals take on a humoristic new suit of clothes.
