Accessible Making: Levelling Differences by Designing and Building Musical Instruments in Mixed Ability Groups.

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


Together with Drake Music Northern Ireland, the common abandonment of assistive technologies and new digital musical instruments in general are discussed. Factors contributing to the short life-span of these two types of technology are likely to be compounded for bespoke, accessible music technology. The idea of inclusive making is explored, providing an example of a cheap, lo-fi sampler that could be built in a workshop environment.
