Musician – Jess Fisher

At lunchtime, we will be treated to a music performance of a brand-new track by Jess Fisher. Jess Fisher was the first musician to use Control One an innovative MIDI controller based on the joystick of an electric wheelchair and allows physically disabled people to create music without having to learn an entirely new physical skill. It was developed through Able Orchestra project activity by lead artist Si Tew of Digit Music in response to the need for more flexible and sophisticated digital instruments for disabled musicians. It won the Accessibility Award in the 2019 Tech4Good Awards. Digit Learning will have a display at the event so you can try their technology for yourself!

It’s going to be a great day so don’t miss out!
