‘inGrid’ – A unique and collaboratively designed accessible musical instrument.



inGridWe are delighted that Dr Brendan McCloskey (University of Ulster’s School of Creative Technologies) will be visiting our London offices on December 5th to introduce a unique and collaboratively designed accessible musical instrument called ‘inGrid’.

‘Brendan is a musician with a deep-seated interest in the customised design of tools and instruments for accessible creative self-expression and has designed a prototype DMI (inGrid) that offers independent real-time expressive control over dynamic musical cues. Performers can control the shape, loudness, timbre, vibrato and resonance of a dynamic digital instrument based on an ostensibly simple switch-targeting gesture. Furthermore, by striking two targets, the performer can control melodic contour and speed.’
