Artist brothers Francois and Bernard Baschet are the originators of the Sound-Sculpture and many other innovative musical instruments. Their creations include the 'Instrumentarium', the Cristal Baschet and the Inflatable Guitar. Combining their two practices, Francois is a sculptor, Bernard is an engineer, the brothers famously created the mirrored Sound-Sculpture dresses for William Klein's 1966 film Qui Êtes-Vous, Polly Maggoo? which was a satire on the contemporary fashion industry. The dresses, that enveloped the body, were at once haute couture and 'body instruments', their music 'playable' through movement. The brothers have exhibited their Sound-Sculptures at many internationally prestigious venues including New York's Museum of Modern Art.
