The Accessible Music Project (AMPs)

Electric Leaves

Why create a wall that can recite poetry?

Or have a foot operated electronic drum kit?

Floor Drums
Big Button Actuator

Or play a Dm guitar chord with your fist?


The S.T.E.A.M orientated devices were created to help the S.E.N.D. communities to enjoy the benefits of engaging in music.

Inspired by the 2012 Paralympics, a "musical prosthesis" can assist a person with impairments to play. Originally this was simply a MIDI adapter for attaching a range of "actuators" to keyboard. As time moved on a variety of projects generated a range of other musical devices. Relevent fabrication and coding information is now been included on some projects.

The AMPs objective is to create musical devices that work at the level a person succeeds and is encouraged. Some of the devices use micro-controllers which can provide data logging for measuring outcomes.
