iPad Quartet & Kris Halpin
Cryptic Nights presents a musical performance created by disabled musicians, giving a dynamic glimpse into inclusive technology, composition and performance in the 21st century.
Drake Music Scotland’s Digital Orchestra, which developed out of their Technophonia project in 2012, sees musicians pioneering innovative new ways of making music with laptops, iPads, digital synthesizers and wearable technology. In this performance, musicians from the orchestra will showcase a selection of this technology, which will be explored from multiple perspectives using live camera capture.
Throughout the evening, each work will be ‘unpacked’ with insightful discussions about how this technology is bridging gaps and enabling musicians to have physical control over their playing that would not be possible to this level using traditional instruments.
