Vocal performance system with sensor-glove controller for augmented singing. The singer’s manual and vocal gestures are used to multiply, transform and extend the voice.
By opening a hand, the voice is opened into choral polyphony, by closing it, it is pulled back into singularity. By cocking back the wrist, the voice is stretched and frozen in time. This is accomplished with stretch conductive textile-based sensors on the hand that senses the positions of the fingers and wrist coupled with software that extracts prosodic features from the voice. The glove transforms intuitive hand gestures into fantastical sonic manipulations.
