Beyond Silence / Piano

Beyond Silence
Beyond Silence

‘Beyond silence’ is a digital piano for hearing-impaired people (especially for children). People think hearing is the only way to enjoy the music; with this perception, hearing-impaired people have been isolated from music. Focusing on the fact that hearing-impaired people can feel the music by vibration, we worked on helping them not only enjoy but also play the music by feeling the vibration and the wave of music and furthermore visualizing it.
