Barrierefreies Musizieren mit digitalen Medien
Musiklusion is a multiple award-winning initiative by Andreas Brand and has been taking place at Lebenshilfe Tuttlingen since 2015. The project provides people with (so-called) disabilities barrier-free access to active music-making by means of intelligent musical instruments and individual interfaces.
Obviously, when Andreas Brand asked me if I wanted to develop a new kind of interface for the project, I did not hesitate to agree. After ideation and several prototype-iterations, we decided to use the HTC Vive trackers as the input device. We started to 3D print several wrist mounts in order to place the trackers on the musicians hands.
Here you can see some on the final progress of our work:
