XpoNorth Podcast #009: Chagall

What if you made electronic music but wanted to get away from the machines and express yourself on stage but still control every aspect of your musical performance through movement and expressive dance? That’s what Chagall has been doing for years, especially through her work with MI.MU.

Chagall is a singer-songwriter, performer and electronic music producer based in Amsterdam. Her performances incorporate gesture based music making using the cutting-edge MI.MU gloves and a custom-made full body sensor suit. She also works in virtual reality and has created a suite of avatars which feature in her performances. She is part of the MI.MU development team.

In this episode of the XpoNorth Podcast Chagall speaks to Dougal Perman about how she approaches making music, how gesture-based performance changes the ways she creates and plays music, how important collaboration is and what bearing advances in technology have on the pursuit of perfection and realness.

These podcasts have been curated by XpoNorth to inspire you and highlight different ways that you can potentially create, generate new ideas, products, services and income during what is a very difficult period for most businesses and organisations.

Show Highlights:

  • Gesture based musical performance
  • MI.MU Gloves and Glover software
