We are now ready to invite music fans who are d/Deaf to try the Musical Vibrations kit out at a live music event.
We need to find out:
- How the experience of having four separate vibrotactile sources from different musical instruments enhances the experience of being at a live music event
- Whether using the equipment from a slightly raised position and with bare feet makes users feel self conscious such that it presents a barrier to the use of the equipment and, if so, what we can do about it
- If using the equipment is comfortable to use over the duration of an average live music event
- The best language to use in an instruction manual so that the equipment is easy and safe to use if you’re using it for the first time.
If you’re a music fan who is d/Deaf and you are interested in working with us on this exciting project, please get in touch at MUSVIB
