...check Benoit Maubrey's Audio Ballerinas, more here:

"Since the mid-1980s, Benoît Maubrey has increasingly worked with 'sounding
bodies', 'speaking clothes', and in public spaces. The plexiglass tutus of
the 'Audio Ballerinas' are equipped with solar cells (outdoors) or
batteries (inside) and a complete, ambulant electronic sound system
including microphone, recorder, amplifier, digital storage, and
loudspeakers. Thus, the ballerinas can directly record, store, sample, and
mix sounds from their environment. In contrast to the Walkman's principle
of mobile auto-isolation, these interactive objects connect the performer
to his immediate surroundings, so that in the ideal case a transparent
interaction arises between site, audience, choreography, and sound." -
