Some Musicians Finally Get Their Hands On Mini-Oramics

The next week I brought the new machine into Goldsmiths for some artists to start working with.

John Lely started off proceedings and also helped me get it in tune properly! John was amazing and really expolored the boundaries and parameters of the device and will hopefully be working with Mini-Oramics again soon. Unfortunately I don't have a film of his initial work.

I then also had some short visits from some other musicians and made this short video:

I also worked with Ain Bailey, Jo Thomas and James Bulley and made this slightly longer video which started to appear on various other websites and blogs (mainly thanks to the Sarah and Phoenix at the Goldsmiths press team). James programmed a short version of Messiaen's Oraison which features at the end of the video. The work which was originally written for Ondes Martenot really suited Mini-Oramics.
