MUSIC A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE
Most of us have grown up with Music. Right from when we are born it is present in our homes, in our surroundings, in our transportation and we even create dedicated spaces where one can visit and enjoy musical performances. Yet music is the stimulation of a very specific human sense- listening. Quite simply speaking music is the channeling of sounds in various patterns to incite emotions. If we further break this down a sound is merely vibrations. The speed and amplitude of these vibrations determine a majority of the sounds we hear. These sounds are received by our ears and translated to our brains. But there are many people in the world for whom this chain of reactions is incomplete. For these individuals, the music gains new meaning. While we hear music, they take it in by feeling. So what if we could create spaces for music that explore the world of sensory stimulation making music and its performances more accessible?

BRIEF OF COMPETITION
In a world where technology has created unprecedented opportunities to make different experiences more accessible it may be valuable to consider how we can harness these technologies and create spaces that are more universal.The challenge here is to create a space for music for the deaf whereby with the use of technology music is not just heard but also felt. A space here through the means of sensory stimulation music is made more accessible. The design need not be a formal space but a more accessible and well-equipped space where music and theater can be experienced by all. You must consider the different sensory experiences that are related to sound and how they are experienced by both individuals with hearing and those without. It also might be valuable to consider that even in deafness there are various levels at which people can or cannot hear. Your design may draw inspiration from existing musical performance space typologies or attempt to imagine new experiential designs altogether.


Short Description

The challenge here is to create a space for music for the deaf whereby with the use of technology music is not just heard but also felt.
