iMUSE set up

What is iMUSE?

iMUSE provides a relaxing and creative space where participants can connect with the world around them, make their own choices and develop non-verbal ways of communicating.

iMUSE uses interactive technology to help participants experience:

Relaxation - a vibrating mattress gently massages the body. This calms and focuses the mind, relaxes muscle tone and reduces anxiety and stress. 

Music Making - you don’t have to have any previous musical experience to make music with iMUSE. Motion sensors detect your movements and turn them into sounds. 

Creating Visuals - a microphone picks up sounds and iMUSE transforms them into visuals that are projected into the iMUSE space.

Each session lasts for 30 minutes. Our facilitator works with you to find out which sounds, music and visuals help you to relax and focus. They then use these to personalise your iMuse experience so it’s tailor-made for you.

Who benefits from iMUSE?
