Not 'that' Nick Cave

"And what costume shall the poor girl wear
To all tomorrow's parties?
For Thursday's child is Sunday's clown
For whom none will go mourning."

- Velvet Underground, "All Tomorrow's Parties." (196

These 'sound suits' by artist Nick Cave are magical. At first I thought they were produced by the musical artist, whom I greatly admire, but after watching the video interview found out is actually another Nick Cave, an associate professor at the Art Institute of Chicago.

About the sound suits, Cave says, "I believe that the familiar must move towards the fantastic. I want to evoke feelings that are unnamed, that aren’t realized except in dreams." These are truly dream-like works of art. I love 'em.
