Jesse Stewart, associate professor of music at Carleton University, is an award-winning composer, percussionist, visual artist, and sound artist, whose music has been featured at festivals throughout Canada, the United States, and Europe. A past recipient of the Terry Fox Humanitarian Award in recognition of his commitment to volunteerism and community activism, Jesse is committed to fostering community health through music, art, and education. He is the founder of "We Are All Musicians" (WAAM), an organization dedicated to providing opportunities for individuals to make music regardless of age, musical training, socio-economic circumstance, physical, and/or cognitive disability. 

The concert will include an interactive demonstration of the AUMI programs. AUMI software interface enables the user to play sounds and musical phrases through movement and gestures. It enables all users to independently engage in music making.
