Mr X is an up-and-coming 23 year old musician, songwriter and film maker with cerebral palsy. He is non-verbal and has very limited movement. Mr X wrote his debut single using a computer operated by his eye movements and played various virtual instruments. In this workshop you’ll watch the video of his single and find out how he wrote the music and made an accompanying music video. You will then have a rare opportunity to try out the eyegaze technology yourself.
