PhD student Samantha is using AudioCubes for her research

We were really impressed when receiving a message from Samantha Ewart, a PhD student at the School of Communication Arts, University of Western Sydney (Australia). She is an unusual customer of the AudioCubes or the “Music Cubes” as she calls them in her work.
Samantha started using the Percussa AudioCubes for a project within her Music Degree to help distract and entertain adolescent patients at the Children’s Hospital Westmead. She renamed the AudioCubes to the Music Cubes, to make it easier for the kids to grasp the meaning of them.
Together with Dr Garth Paine, she researched at the Department of Adolescent Medicine of the Children’s Hospital Westmead whether the AudioCubes could be innovative stimulation (visually and aurally) for the adolescent patients. To research this they used the AudioCubes together with Ableton Live and Max/MSP.
