at June Jordan High School for Equity
on December 1st, 2010

As a prequel to the semester long elective class NEXMAP plans to offer in 2011, Sonami brought her wares and talent to High Schoolers: in a very intimate settings, 45 students heard a performance by the innovator behind the Ladie's Glove and had a chance to ask questions and understand how the artist makes her magic.

This event is part of NEXMAP's Inside/Out program.

Laetitia Sonami
Composer, performer, and sound installation artist Laetitia Sonami combines text, music and "found sound" from the world, in compositions which have been described as "performance novels. Her signature instrument, the Lady's Glove, tracks the slightest motion of ngers, hand, and arm: through its use, Sonami can create performances where those tiny movements shape the music and environment. Born in France, Sonami moved to the United States in 1975 and lives in Oakland, California. She is guest lecturer at the San Francisco Art Institute and the Milton Avery MFA program at Bard College.
