"FingerRing (FrR) - is a simple, cheap, intuitive and easy way to play with electronically mediated multi-channel sound. It was developed in Moscow Sound Art Studio SA))_studio by sergey kasich in 2016 to provide accessible d.i.y. technology for multichannel live performances. The simplest version of FrR does not require anything at all, except what you already have, if you want to play with multiple speaker set. Just a bunch of cables and amplification. The more advanced versions can be built in form of different interfaces. The one for 8 inputs and 8 outputs, kasich proposes himself and calls fFlower-interface. It uses exponential curves etched on copper boards to provide flexible articulation during performance. All the instructions and design are available for free on official web-page.

This version was presented around the World in exhibitions and universities, including: BRERA art & technology academy (Milano, Italy), National University for Science and Technology (Moscow, Russia), New York University Tandon School of Engenering (New York, USA), EXPO-2017 (Astana, Kazakhstan), NIME-2018 (Virginia Tech University, USA). Special presentation was made for Dr. Peter Zinovieff in his studio in Cambridge (UK). FrR received high estimation from academic community of music tech, during selection of works for NIME 2018 (New Interfaces for Musical Expression), and was the only project from Russia, presented in the conference in form of all-day interactive installation at Moss Art Center.
Since October 2018 anyone, who lives in New York or near is able to visit weekly FREE seminars to explore the FrR technique and build their own interface. The regular seminars are supported by HarvestWorks - one of the oldest non-profit artist-run organizations in USA, working with sound and technological arts. Seminars are usually happening on Wednesday evenings, but can be changed. They are planned till the end of December.
