Digital Care: The Hands by Michel Waisvisz

The Hands by Michel Waisvisz, 1984-2000

Michel Waisvisz, inspired by the desire to be touched by sound, created The Hands (1984), asdigital musical instrument that consists of controllers that can be attached to the user's hands. Each controller has a tiny keyboard with a number of sensors and keys that interprets the movements of the hands, arms, and fingers into sounds. Waisvisz started using The Hands as his main tool for performances and concerts where he was interacting with the instrument by touch and movement.
