Ricerche sull'utilizzo del SoundBeam  

Presentazione SoundBeam convegno presso La Nostra Famiglia del 31 Maggio 2007
Living Sound: human interaction and children with autism
Pilot Projects for Group Music-Making in Schools with electronic music and multi-media technology, voices and other instruments in live performanceiving
Soundbeam technology enables users to create sounds through the smallest movement by interrupting an ultrasonic beam and can open up the potential for creative control to children with the most profound disabilities. This book looks in detail at aspects of Soundbeam use and builds on the information contained in existing Soundbeam manuals. Chapters explain how the technology works and is set up, as well as offering practical examples of techniques and exercises to help you develop the way in which you work with Soundbeam. Consideration is given to particular needs such as cerebral palsy and visual impairment.
This descriptive project was created by Jack Young with the assistance of the Soundbeam files from the Northern Wisconsin Center for the Developmentally Disabled.  We would like to acknowledge our appreciation to Kris Martineau, MT-BC, Music Therapy Clinical Training Director at the Northern Center, for her help with our Soundbeam work
