Title: 
  • Title is in Icelandic Musical Composition For Tactile Perception
Degree: 
  • Master's
Abstract: 
  • This project aims to explore the emotional impact of music composed especially for the purpose of being felt through the skin and not heard through the air via the ears. To transmit the music, a prototype device called the “0dB chair” was constructed. The chair will transmit vibrations on 5 separate channels through numerous haptic transducers which are located on specific points on the body of the “listener”. It features music commissioned from a selection of hearing and also deaf musicians.
