Using Tangible Interaction to Design Musicking Artifacts for Non-musicians

Research output: Working paperPreprint


This paper presents a Research through Design exploration of the potential for using tangible interactions to enable active music experiences - musicking - for non-musicians. We present the Tubularium prototype, which aims to help non-musicians play music without requiring any initial skill. We present the initial design of the prototype and the features implemented in order to enable music-making by non-musicians, and offer some reflections based on observations of informal initial user explorations of the prototype.
