- rethinking musical instruments for learning -
Tingle is a new instrument, which is used to teach young students about music. The instrument is a converted pin-board toy that is used to demonstrate the forming of music and sound. The 3D landscape, created by whatever is underneath the board, is used to generate the metaphoric musical landscape. It is a 3D version of the sound visualizers normally embedded in music softwares and is a common visual representative for sound. Using this metaphor makes it easier for young students to link their actions to the created sounds and achieve quick embodiment.
