Chicago League of Lady Arm Wrestlers X
July 2, 2011
Joe's on Weed Street, Chicago, IL
The Chicago League of Lady Arm Wrestlers celebrated America, Freedom, Truth, Justice, and strong-armed lady arm wrestling in its 10th bout: CLLAW X: Red, White and Bruised. Seventeen wrestlers, both returning veterans and a slew of new talent, competed for the honor to wear the CLLAW sash and crown. Monica Panzarino kicked off the event, performing "The Star-Spangled Banner" with the aid of “The Nipulator”, her custom-built, wireless electronic bra. The bra uses hardware potentiometers (or knobs), an Arduino microcontroller, and a Max/MSP software patch to process Panzarino's voice in real-time. The right "nipple" of the bra manipulates the frequency of Panzarino’s voice, while the left "nipple" adds reverb.
