Artist and researcher Di Mainstone is a global ambassador for audio innovators Sennheiser and took part in their international Momentum campaign, which aimed to inspire young people to explore sound in creative ways. Di is also Artist in residence at Queen Mary University London, where she collaborates with researchers from the Centre for Digital Music and Media Arts and Technology group, to develop new musical instruments that are inspired by the body, transforming physical movement into sound via digital technology.

Di has invented the term “Movician” to describe the player of her wearable instruments – a hybrid artist who explores and composes sound through movement. She has been able to expand her research into sound and technology through international residencies at institutes such as Eyebeam Centre for Art and Technology in New York, XS Labs in Montreal, V2_Institute for the Unstable Media in Rotterdam and The Banff Centre in Canada. Gathering this knowledge she has created a pioneering method of building wearable sonic instruments on the body of dancers, which she has coined “body-centric design”.

Di is the founder of the acclaimed Human Harp project – a collaborative instrument that transforms suspension bridges into giant harps!
