Friday I am going to participate in a very special and challenging project.
In cooperation with "My Breath My Music" there is initiated a session together with some of the students of this establishment.
I have prepared some music, on which we will do improvisations. Really looking forward how things will work out!
The purpose of "My Breath My Music" is to offer people with severe physical disabilities a possibility to make music with for example self-developed electronic instruments.
The main target is people with a muscle desease.
Electronic wind instruments enable disabled people to play an instrument. It also is an effective way to practice the lungs, which is very important for the targetted group.
The Magic Flute was originally designed as an adaptive musical instrument for people with little or no arm movement - with the goal of allowing people with a wide range of disabilities the ability to perform live electronic music that can be at the highest professional quality. It is also an exciting and rewarding way for people who have limited lung function to carry out Breathing Exercises that will never become tedious to them.
The Magic Flute is not only an instrument but also acts as the remote control for the Control Module (sip & puff).
