Computers these days give us the power to create almost any sound imaginable, so now we have to question ourselves – how do we interact with our computers physically? In this workshop you will explore what it’s like to control those sounds and effects with your movement by learning about Glover – a mapping application for converting movement to MIDI or OSC.

What you'll learn

  • Mapping movement to MIDI in Glover
  • Training postures in Gliss
  • Mapping from Glover to a DAW
  • Considering what “good” movements are to control sound 


  • Download the free Gliss app from the Apple app store: iOs only
  • Download free trial of Glover via mimugloves.com/glover
  • A DAW or a piece of hardware that can receive MIDI or OSC - Ableton Live recommended as Chagall will be most proficient at supporting you with that but others work too
  • A microphone routed into your computer if you’d like to experiment with manipulating your voice with Gliss
