Mira Martin-Gray is an improviser and reluctant composer preoccupied by feedback, probing the intersections between noise & melody, drone & rhythm, indeterminacy & control. Reclaiming undesirable sounds, she wields the emotionally expressive power of abstract music to counter dominant cultures of (un)desirability. A multi-instrumentalist, injury and disability led her to find means of making music accessibly using mixing boards. She lives in Toronto.
OUT OF BODY OUT OF WORK: solos for mixing boards is a document of Mira’s work exploring the expressive and emotive possibilities of the mixing board. She recorded her solo performances at her home in June and July of 2019. This is her first album for pan y rosas discos.
