The FINGERTIP VOCODER as a performance-instrument allows
the tactile control of the natural voice and its artificial extensions.
Brazen Fingertiprings act as expansion of the body and are used
for the modification of the voice – the touch of each finger with
the thumb transposes the own voice and overlay it with certain
The performance, an improvised choir piece for one person,
becomes a tactile voice-experiment due to the haptic and acoustic
alienation of the body and the voice.
The fingertiprings act as switches, which cause a specially
programmed vocoder-function on the computer.
Each finger is connected to such a switch, generating a certain
interval which overlays the original track in realtime.
