Max's Music

Children's Music Prototype

Max's Music

Max's Music is a prototype for a children's music application. The inspiration for the project was my little brother, who suffers from from sensory integration disorder. With this disorder, he gets easily overwhelmed by many sounds at once.

With this application, a child can create a multi-layered semi-musical composition by combining different families of sound. Working at their own pace, a child can gradually add tracks to desensitize themselves to multiple sounds.

To use, the child drags sounds from the sound panel onto the composition panel. To play the current composition, the child presses the play button. If the child is feeling unsure where to begin, they can use the help function to see how to use the application. If the child is feeling brave or adventurous, they can try the random function, which populates the composition with a random set of sounds.
