Inclusive Music Experiences for the Deaf and and Hard of Hearing by Wanqing Liu
Welcome to my exhibit of my major research project. My MRP topic is inclusive music experience for the D/deaf and hard of hearing. This exhibit aims to show my current exploration and future direction in the topic, including the background, knowledge gap, and my demo, etc. Visitors will interact with multimedia to put themselves in the shoes of the d/Deaf and hard-of-hearing, and realize the importance of improving music accessibility.
