In Northern Ireland, the Performance Without Barriers (PwB) research group works with disabled artists from the Drake Music Project Northern Ireland (DMNI) to identify ways in which technology can remove access barriers to musicking. Since disabled people are experts in their unique lived experience of disability, they must be involved in the design process, an approach known as participatory design. Many of us are still adjusting to the new normal, only beginning to understand the impact of distributed digital living. In this article, we examine how the work of PwB has been affected, changed and adapted during the pandemic, expanding ideas of distributed creativity to the notion of distributed design. The authors formalise the concept of distributed participatory design, an approach which classifies PwBs current research activities in the area of accessible music technology (AMT) design and improvised musicking. Consideration is given to the impact distribution has on degrees of participation.
