Kris Halpin: ability, disability and creativity. A jaw-dropping conversation Lives in Music

    • Music Interviews

Kris Halpin, who also trades as Dyskinetic, is now known for his work with the MiMu gloves, created by Imogen Heap. The gloves let you create music by gesture and movement alone. There's another factor that informs Kris and his work: disability. It led Kris to his involvement with the gloves, as he saw they could be a fantastic tool for musicians with disabilities. The makers took him on to help with research. Here, Kris deals with his disability with jaw-dropping openness, and I am hugely grateful.
