Hosted by

Amble Skuse is a musician and artist, working with found sound, voices, electronic processing, and site specific locations.

Amble Skuse is a disabled sound artist and composer. Amble recently completed a Residency with MiMu Gloves, which are an innovative, wearable tech fitted with sensors which allow multiple manipulation of sound, light, video... anything in fact, via midi and OSC.

In this session, Amble will demonstrate the gloves, explore the hardware and software associated with them and share some of her most recent work. She will also showcase creative responses from other artists exploring the full potential of the gloves. 

There will also be a chance to have a good look at the gloves, try a few simple patches and ask questions. There is huge scope in the use of the gloves, making them a great resource for visual artists, musicians, dancers, theatre practitioners, performance artists and more to incorporate into their practice.

The demonstration and talk will be followed by a Q and A.
