MUSIC SHORT LIST
Part technomystifier, part darkly enchanting performance artist, Sonami tells stories within electronic environments that respond to her every movement. For this gig she’s bringing back her invention the Lady’s Glove, a pressure- and direction-sensitive glove with sensors running up to her elbow, with which she can control 16 computerized functions at once. Her texts are usually by Melody Sumner Carnahan, the result like a half-remembered dream.
Wednesday and Thursday at 8, The Kitchen,512 West 19th St, 255-5793
