Leafcutter John has designed, built, and developed a light controlled musical interface - a music performance system comprising a light sensitive controller and specialised software that is played gesturally.
He's performed throughout Europe using the system and given talks and workshops with it at various Music and Art Schools. In 2012 he took this system to Vietnam at the invitation of the British Council and in 2014 played it to a sold-out Roundhouse in London supporting Imogen Heap. In 2015 the interface won the Quartz Award for Innovation.
Join us at this afternoon event in which John will introduce and demonstrate his new invention, followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
Doors open at 3:30. Talk starts at 4pm.
A concert by Leafcutter John and Laura Cannell will take place the same evening, 8-10pm.
Open to all age 12+. This is a Pay What You Decide event. Please register to book your seat.
