Drake Music Scotland in collaboration with Cryptic present a Cryptic Night.

Experience a musical performance presented by disabled musicians, giving a dynamic glimpse into inclusive technology, composition and performance in the 21st century.

Drake Music Scotland’s Digital Orchestra pioneers innovative ways of making music with laptops, iPads, digital synthesizers and other ground-breaking technologies. Musicians from the orchestra will showcase a selection of this technology, which will be explored from multiple perspectives using live camera capture.

Kris Halpin is a leading exponent of the ‘wearable tech’ and movement-capturing ‘Mi-Mu’ Gloves created by Imogen Heap for dynamic performance, and will showcase his latest compositions.

Throughout the evening, each work will be ‘unpacked’ with insightful discussions about how this technology is bridging gaps and enabling musicians to have physical control over their playing that would not be possible to this level using traditional instruments.
