Earth to Abigail is a music project I (Mynah Marie) created to align my love for programming and technology with my creative expression.
In 2016, I discovered a new passion for computer programming and set myself the goal to make a career change and become a developer (to the despair of a lot of my musician friends who thought I’d leave the music world forever and become a hermit hidden away in a cave room in front of my computer).
It didn’t take long for me to realize that even though I loved programming, my true calling wasn’t to find a job in high tech. The stage was calling me and I felt a powerful urge to reinvent myself as an artist and musician. From that point in time, I took my live coding practice with Sonic Pi seriously and created Earth to Abigail. I wanted to use code as a medium of expression as much as my instrument and voice.
Earth to Abigail has become my creative space, halfway between a lab and a playground where I experiment with programming and technology in a way that fits my creativity.
