Public Research Seminar: Dr Joe Wright (speaker) - Making Sounds, Music and Technology with Neurodiverse Children & Young People

This seminar introduces Joe Wright’s recent PhD research into the design of sound-play instruments for young autistic children. Arising from the project are a set of concepts, design approaches and artefacts that can be used in contexts where collaboration – or a state of being with rather than doing to – is desirable in art for young neurodiverse audiences. The talk closes with an overview of Joe’s current work with Oily Cart and Drake Music, and the ways that this new work has been informed by his research.

Joe Wright is a saxophonist, improviser and creative technologist who thrives in collaborative and interdisciplinary settings. He regularly performs with Rob Luft (Edition Records) and Onin (FD, FLUF), and is currently collaborating with companies including Oily Cart and Drake Music on the design of inclusive sound/music technology.
