Tech as a creative instrument for music – tech podcast

May 12, 2017, 06:00 AM

Tech can become part of any artist’s expressive toolkit. In music, it can be used as an instrument to improvise and compose with, and this week we’re meeting two different creators who are using it in unusual ways.

Matthew Olden is a computer artist who uses the programs he makes for music, visuals and other elements in his own performances. He records under the name I Am the Mighty Jungulator, and the software he uses is Max MSP.

Kathy Hinde is an audio-visual artist based in Bristol, whose work includes installations like Piano Migrations, Tipping Point, and Luminous Birds. She’s been devising a new commission for Cryptic in Glasgow, for their festival Sonica, while on a residency in Cove Park.
