How The Mi Mu Gloves Use Midi

  • Tell us about yourself briefly-

I write, sing, play various instruments, program drums etc, edit, mix and produce my own work in my home studio or wherever a project takes me.

I’m now fully independent, with no management, publishing or label! It feels amazing to be completely untethered.

Over the last 5 years I’ve been developing with a team of now 8 people, a gestural performance system around wireless gloves. We call the system Mi.Mu. To reach inside the technology of the computer and sculpt music. Changing the way creatively we think about sound both at the writing and performance end of the spectrum and closer engagement with the audience.

I tend to make things where i find gaps in my life, workflow or business. Songs, gloves and recently imagining a Fair Trade Music industry i call Mycelia.

  • What was your first encounter with MIDI?

A sound module in the cupboard at the music school I went to. In there was an Atari with Notator and the sounds I played were off of this device… but I actually have no idea what it was but it was hooked up via midi! I was 12, this was back in 1990.

I use it mainly when mapping my gloves into Ableton live. Choosing the midi channel and note or cc, I can automate anything within the program, wirelessly and fluidly. For example, simply panning a sound from left to right, by moving my arm left to right.

Or gaining the length of a reverb by One Finger Point, to the top right ‘corner’ of the space before me.

  • How has MIDI allowed you to do what you do?

The standard is one of the few, where because of it’s elegance and simplicity, has been adopted across the industry and so making it possible to try out all manner of weird and wonderful applications. It just works. We just need someone to sort out wireless a bit better now so we don’t have to have all those darned midi cables!

Just thank you!
