SONGscape at Mission Synths with Matt Robidoux

In celebration of SONG, a group exhibition on view at Creativity Explored, join the CE community with musician and composer Matt Robidoux at Mission Synths for an interactive music-making workshop using adaptive technologies and instruments.

During the event, participants are invited to map their gestures and movements to sounds and musical phrases using Deep Listening Institute’s Adaptive Use Musical Instrument (AUMI). This accessible technology, originally created by composer Pauline Oliveros, is a software interface that allows anyone to create music with movement – for example, by moving one’s hands or blinking an eye.

Interpreting sheet music drawings by Creativity Explored artist Walter Kresnik and other artworks on view in the exhibition SONG, together the group will play and record an original SONGscape. We can’t wait to see and hear what we create together!

The event is open to all ages and abilities. Eventbrite registration is recommended with a suggested donation of $10.

100% of proceeds go to Creativity Explored programs and services for developmentally disabled artists in San Francisco.

Before the event at Mission Synths, drop by the CE gallery between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM to experience SONG in person.
