The first time I heard the "Carmen" track by Sovereign on the Bingo Beats Vol. 1 album, I knew I had to use it in a fashion show piece. It's basically Carmen (as in the opera by Bizet), but with all robotic sounds. I decided to make Carmen-bot costume for the 2004 Cloud Factory Design Collective fashion show, and as luck would have it, I even managed to find a ballerina who had just choreographed Carmen for her MFA. A friend added some excellent airbrushed body paint to complete the look.
