Pierre-Yves Fortier designed the original version of the FM Gloves (or Fortier-Marshal Gloves). Mark T. Marshall created a new version, based on the original design, specifically for the Digital Orchestra Project.
The FM Gloves consist of two black skin-tight gloves which are augmented with a number of sensors. These sensors are connected to a small beltpack, which digitizes the signals and transmits them wirelessly to a Kroonde Gamma system. This system then transmits the values to Max/MSP using Open Sound Control over a network connection.
The sensors used in the gloves are as follows:
All sensors are attached to the gloves using velcro, to allow them to be moved to different sized gloves for different performers.
