It's a glove with a mini-LDR on the fingertips that are connected to a circuit and an amplifier. Different sounds are produced acording to hands and fingers movements due to light incidence on mini-LDR sensor. More light produce higher pitch sounds, less light produce lower pitch sounds.
So -FistFly- is a fun to play instrument because it is a mix of sound and physical performance.
* FirstFly connected to guitar pedals. LIVE software and PURE DATA software can increase the sound performance.
