In this paper, we present the preliminary results from an ongoing interaction design experiment, the Voice Pump. The Voice Pump is an affectively engaging air-based interface for attuning to the differential qualities of voices in order to change attachments between native Danish speakers and non-native Danish speakers, in particular refugees coming to the country. We present the outset for the design process, the current version of the design, the technical setup for the air-based sound processing and how we plan to continue our explorations in the future.
