Musii takes into account that not everyone is a musical genius, but once equipped with the inflatable instrument everyone can play, feel, and visualize music, with the added joy of getting to squish things.
Originally designed for Special Needs education, Musii presents children with the therapeutic and rewarding experience of making music. By inflating and deflating the nylon spires an individual or a group can play along to a musical scale or experiment with one of the 50 inbuilt soundscapes. The cones also hum gently to the touch which adds a tactile element to the instrument, in built LEDs also change colour to suite the music proving a visual stimulation.
Musician Jnr Hacksaw and inflatables artists Filthy Luker and Pedro Estrellas wanted to develop a versatile and valuable therapeutic musical tool that enables the users to see and feel the music that they are interacting with.
