South-London born sound artist CIL experiments in the field of electronic music, using a blend of spoken and sung poetry, and live electronics to communicate aspects of her identity. Her most recent creation is Juniper, an electronic MIDI instrument she built during lockdown. Juniper is reactive to motion on either side of her body, and CIL is currently playing around with how she can work with her (Juniper’s a she) in her performances/installation work to manipulate sounds, from her voice, to synthesis. CIL will use Juniper to manipulate live harp from Marysia Osu as part of her live electronic set.
