Adaptive Music Technology

Jaclyn imagines a world of accessibility to all people, especially accessibility in creating art and music.  Jaclyn was able to work on the Adaptive Use Musical Instruments (AUMI) Project from the Deep Listening Institute from January 2010 until hitting the road in October of 2012.  AUMI has brought music improvisation into the lives of people who had not had the opportunity to create music. You can learn more about the AUMI project and software at http://deeplistening.org/site/adaptiveuse
