Motion Sound Labs
Motion Sound Lab explores the limits and capabilities of technology to support cross-platform work between movement and sound practitioners, particularly in physical disability settings. Partners come together to experiment, create, and share digital practice, resulting in increased skills, knowledge and use of technology.
Motion Sound Lab is a programme in development. It is currently looking at how we can use technology to allow creative outputs to be inclusive. By working with musicians, dancers, developers, designers and a host of interested parties, many with disabilities, we are developing a programme to find the most innovative uses of technology for inclusive music making and dance.
If you are interested in getting involved in the future of Motion Sound Lab, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

The Rhythmix Music Mentoring programme gives young aspiring musicians who need support a professional musician for one to one mentoring. The young people tell us their interests and what they want to gain from having a mentor, and we assign a musician with experience or knowledge in those specific areas to make it the best experience possible.
