MiMU Gloves are a wearable motion-based musical instrument / controller. In this lunchtime talk, we'll be hearing from artists, about their experience of working with MiMU gloves and how their projects are developing.
This Lunchtime talk will be broadcast Live on Watershed's Youtube Channel.
Remote_CTRL is a new research and development residency. Five Disabled creatives are spending the summer of 2021 making new work, exploring and expanding their creative practice with the use of MiMU Gloves.
MiMU Gloves are a wearable motion-based musical instrument / controller. As a new and evolving technology, there is massive scope for innovation in how the gloves can be used, and we’re excited to see how resident artists and musicians take their gloves in new directions during their residencies.
To start the artists off on ongoing adventures with their gloves, the residency includes a series of talks and workshops with industry innovators, one-to-one technical support and creative mentoring. In this lunchtime talk, we'll be hearing from some of the artists, about their experience of working with the gloves, and how their projects are developing. Within this talk we will be joined by Izzi Valentine, Andrea Spisto and Amble Skuse.
Join us, on Friday 24th September, 13:00- 14:00 for the talk and to take part in the discussion afterwards.
Andrea Spisto is a Venezuelan/Curaçaoean performance artist, film-maker and neuroqueer clown, whose work focuses on playful autobiographical exploration through physical masks (characters) that delve into the corners of the psyche. The work follows thematic interweaving, moving adjacent to narrative storytelling. Straddling live art, comedy, theatre and clowning, Andrea’s work has been described as genre smashing, surreal, gentle and exuberant.
Amble work focuses on using voices, speech patterns, found sound, and live interactive processing to explore ideas of identity & location. She works with live instruments, electronics, Logic and Max/MSP and body sensors to create soundscapes, improvisations, networked performances, and compositions.
Her most recent work We Ask These Questions of Everybody is a digital opera exploring the lives of Disabled people in the UK through an interview with the government agency responsible for disability support.
