One of Imogen’s new projects involves a high-tech pair of gloves that she uses to manipulate sound in a concert setting:

The gloves contain sensors that monitor the motion of the wearer’s finger joints, along with a gyroscope and accelerator to track the orientation of the wearer’s hands in space and microphones attached to the wrist for sound capture. All the data is then streamed to a laptop for analysis and audio processing.
"The gestures lend themselves to the processes that they control," explains Tom Mitchell (developer). "For example, a grasping gesture is used to sample voice and instruments, panning is achieved by pointing in the direction that the sound should be positioned, and filtering is achieved by closing the hands as if you are smothering the sound."
