YLE Interview for Sound Gloves

The Radio Channel of YLE (Finnish Broadcasting Company) is interviewing Sound Gloves (2011), a collaborative performance work by Chi-Hsia Lai (SOPI), Carmen Brecheis and Minna Holkkola, carried out in Aalto Media Factory’s Wearable Electronics course. Sound Gloves : wearable musical instruments, featured three different pairs of gloves that were made with a performance goal in mind to further engage and interact with the audience by considering the relationship between the performers and the performance space. The custom-made wearable glove instruments facilitated such a concept as they allowed the performers to freely move around in the performance space without any constraints made by external connections of cables. This performance work attempted to dissolve the distance between the performers and the audience in the performance context.
