Composer Makes Music with Movement
CTV Vancouver Island | June 13, 2012
VICTORIA — A young Victoria musician is releasing his first album, despite a big hurdle.
Ari Kinarthy was told he wouldn’t be able to make music . That changed after he started attending the Victoria Conservatory of Music.
The 22-year-old is living with Spinal Muscular Atrophy; a genetic condition that weakens all the muscles in his body.
Thanks to technology called Soundbeam, Kinarthy can compose his own songs and perform them. It turns his movement into music.
Now he’s released his first album, a collection of nine songs titled The Lion’s Journey.
It is available for sale at the Victoria Conservatory of Music.
