About Amble Skuse

Amble Skuse is a musician and artist, working with found sound, voices, electronic processing, and site specific locations. She works with site specific compositions to explore myriad identities in myriad locations.

She explores these ideas of identity and power through a lens of intersectional feminism. Her focus is on gender and disability, and she is currently studying for a PhD looking at ways in which a disabled composer / performer can utilise technology as a tool for composing, improvising and performing.

Her work has been featured on BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction, and has taken her across the world, from Edinburgh to Singapore on a 10,000 mile train journey, to Canada to develop an improvising platform with disabled musicians, to China to explore the role of ‘being’ in improvisation, to Croatia to perform with the female coding ensemble OFFAL. She is a Creative Entrepreneurs Fellow and a BBC Performing Arts Fellow. She holds an AHRC scholarship for her research. She most recently wrote, rehearsed and recorded an opera called We Ask These Questions of Everybody. The opera was written and created by an all disabled team remotely during the pandemic and addresses themes of disability in society. I was described in The I as “Politically important and an artistic triumph” and “Astonishing: elegant, enraging, restlessly inventive”.
