Musical interface enables people with physical disabilities to play any instrument

Eye Conductor is a musical interface built by Andreas Refsgaard as a final project at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design. It enables those with physical disabilities to play music using their eye movements and facial gestures. They are given the opportunity to play any instrument, build beats, sequence melodies or trigger musical effects.

Refsgaard carried out user research for his project, visiting several schools and communities for people with physical disabilities. While the people he met had various levels of physical ability, he found that music was a unifying interest for all of them.
