Kuki no Sukima – Starting the performance


My first reflexion is focused on the use of the ConDis technology and its functionality both for practical and artistic use. A sequence of short videos is in the making in order to make it easier for others to follow and hopefully comment. I apologize that the first video is a bit amateurish hence my limited experience in the world of video making. Hopefully, that is going to change as I get more experienced.

Looking at the first page of my composition Kuki no Sukima – Between the air, we can see in the upper left-hand corner of the opening page that the conductor has to do some preparations before starting the piece.

  1. OK sign to activate the Volume interface of DAW
  2. Click the 3rd. finger button to activate play-head button of the DAW
  3. Click the 2nd finger button four times to set the tempo
  4. Close your hand to activate the Volume Value Control
  5. Move arm up or down to set the Volume Value
  6. Open your hand (five fingers out) to deactivate the Volume Value Control

First, she needs to give an OK sign with left hand wearing the Conducting Glove (ConGlove). That gives an indication to the computer to activate the Volume control unit of the ConDiS interface. Then she needs to close her hand to activate the volume control levels and raise her arm a bit. That will set the volume level of the electronics.


Also, pay attention to the Vol_Pan_Fx_selector that indicates finger positions from little finger slider-values to the left to thumb too far right. When the OK sign is given the index finger and thumb go down.

After activating the volume the conductor has to give the given tempo by clicking her index finger (finger no.2) three times, indicated with.

button 2 = set metronome
