Developed by Mika Satomi and Clemens Pichler, DJ Hoodie is a pair of conjoined wearables that allow two performers to engage in a DJ battle. Mixing the old with the new, the hoodies function as a wearable interface used to sample and alter sounds from cassette tapes.
The performers are linked to each other via a knit stretch sensor that connects the hoods of the two garments. As the performers bow and tilt their heads tugging on the sensor, the parameters for the filters are changed thereby effecting the sound. The hoodies are made using soft circuit techniques which are wonderfully documented here for those of you who are curious.
