A Historical Moment on a Line between A and B
expands on Sonami’s continued exploration of shifting sonic perspectives and the intrinsic impermanence of sound. Places and gestures are recalled to create invisible architectures of abstract and real sounds. The real-time control of these sonic structures is done with Sonami’s lady’s glove. Sonami has worked with the lady’s glove in various stages of development since 1991. Fitted with a vast array of sensors which track the slightest motion of the performer’s enigmatic dance, the lady’s glove has become a fine instrument which challenges notions of technology and virtuosity.
