Amble is a composer and sound artist who uses disability theory, body sensor technology, spoken word interviews and electronics to create unique sound works.
She is interested in the interface between the disabled body and the exterior world, and has explored this through numerous sound walks using her wheelchair.
Amble’s work has been performed by ensembles such as Mr McFalls Chamber, Red Note Ensemble and Rarescale. She was one of five Creative Scotland International Creative Entrepreneurship Fellows for 2013, a BBC Performing Arts Fellow (2013), has gained several large scale grants from Creative Scotland to produce work and was a BBC alumni fellow.
Her album What News with Alasdair Roberts and David McGuinness was described in The Guardian as “Skuse’s laptop textures offer slow-burning, elemental accompaniment throughout. So many intricate ideas here, so beautifully done.”
Her most recent large work We Ask These Questions of Everybody is a digital opera exploring the lives of Disabled people in the UK. It was premiered at Scotland’s Sound Festival and gained a 5 star review from The i “Politically important and an artistic triumph”.
