DJ Hoodie is a wearable interface that includes 4 channel zipper switch, fabric buttons with LED indicators and fabric pressure sensors. Two of these hoodies are connected with knitted stretch sensors on the hoods. It interfaces with computer with arduino using Firmata library and Pduino.
It appeared in the performance “Cassette DJ Hoodie Battle” by Mika and Clemens Pichler at STWST, Linz, Austria as a part of LABOR FÜR ELEKTROAKUSTISCHE MUSIK UND NEUE MEDIEN LINZ event.
In this performance, two performers, wearing the DJ hoodies are spontaneously sampling sound from cassette players and applying filters. Each Hoodie controls sample channel and choice of filters on PD patch. The knitted stretch sensor connecting the two hoodies modifies a parameter of the applied filter as performers move their heads.
