Sonic Arts and Public engagement programme “Big Ears” collaborated with The Drake Music Project Northern Ireland (DMNI) in 2015 under the theme: “Designing Inclusive Interactions”. DMNI is a charity working for over 20 years to enable musicians with physical disabilities and learning difficulties to independently compose and perform their own music through technology.
The programme took place over 3 days within SARC, bringing together student musicians, engineers and programmers with musicians with disabilities to collaboratively create develop prototype accessible interfaces, and using them create an improvised electronic music ensemble performance.
