The Accessible Music Project (AMPs)

Using open source technology to support participation in music, whatever the ability.

Electric Leaves

Electric Leaves : Each one will recite a verse of poetry.

Why create a wall that can recite poetry?

Or have a foot operated electronic drum kit?

Floor Drums
I remember the first chords I learnt on a guitar as hard work (A, E, D, G), Four pounds worth of micro-switches and some open source tech puts those chords at your finger tips. Guitar Finger switch

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.
