Designed for touch screen devices, TOnOa Music pays special attention to early years of life. This is where as babies, our first cognitive, emotional and even social processes are conceived, which will mark definitively our development in the adult life. The App is intended to be recreational, where users can explore different musics and sounds through colored and mobile shapes, and a pinch of unexpected responsiveness.
Concretely, TOnOa Music responds on every screen touches and plays funny synthetic sounds. But if INTERACTIVE MODE is activated, then bubbles are loaded with key sounds extracted in real time from the selected soundtrack. This provides an immediate way of playing different rhythms, harmonies, melodies and timbres with easy touch gestures. Select another song and bubbles will automatically explore a completely different world of sounds. The bubbles have their own lifetime, and the more you touch them the more they live. Furthermore, this INTERACTIVE MODE is also able to record babbles or any other emitted sound, creating new bubbles to play with as additional users' emotional expressions. Then it can be thought that it could be one of the first musical improvisations for kids!! (and maybe for us too : ).
Furthermore, TOnOa Music is being tested in music therapy sessions and having good feedback from kids with certain cognitive disorders, attracting their curiosity and concentration.
