Sunday Synth Jam: This video captures a solo performance and demonstration by London-based electronic music artist Chagall.
Chagall is one of around 20 musicians worldwide using the mi.mu MIDI gloves for composition and live performances. Chagall uses the gloves to augment her vocal performances, using hand gestures to control a vocal harmonizer, to play synthesizers and trigger sounds and to control visuals.
While there have been many examples of musician experimenting with gestural music control, in Chagall’s work, gestural control transcends its functional purpose and becomes a primary expressive aspect of her performance.
Chagall’s performance comes from a presentation at Loop 2016 – Ableton’s annual event for music producers. Loop 2017 is scheduled for Nov 10-12 in Berlin.
