Laetitia Sonami is a sound artist and performer. Sonami’s sound performances, live-film collaborations and sound installations focus on issues of presence and participation. Best known for her unique instrument, the lady’s glove, she has devised new gestural controllers for performance and applies new technologies and appropriated media to achieve an expression of immediacy through sound, place and objects. Recent projects include OCCAM IX with French composer Eliane Radigue, 3-MAJ a multi-channel sound installation, and SHEEPWOMAN a live film in collaboration with SUE-C. Awards include the Herb Alpert Awards in the Arts and the Foundation for Contemporary Performance Awards.
