Abstract
In this project, we aim to turn a pair of gloves—purchased at a local thrift store—into a music-making device that allows users to compose, and produce music. The gloves turn any bend or gesture into a piano keyboard , allowing the user to change the finger note values while playing. Or a drum set. Or any number of other musical instruments and sounds with the flick of a wrist or tap of a finger, possibilities are nearly limitless. The goal of this project is to support children and beginners to explore musical movements that can be done by recording backgrounds and melodies and piecing together sections of music, an entire song can be created. The user can add or alter audio effects, including frequency, volume, pitch and panning, just by bending the fingers.
