This project was created to enhance a visitor’s museum experience with music. Some museums may find it difficult to increase the use of technology and participation in their daily function. My project would work well for ‘old school’ museums that typically leave interaction up to the guest, or may use audio tours, docents etc. iPods would be available for check-out, each filled with several playlists. Every gallery would have a corresponding playlist and each piece several track numbers. The soundtrack for each item/artifact/piece would be selected by the curator or artist to evoke more in depth thoughts and moods about the piece. It would allow for guests to become more engaged with the art/artifact without disturbing the quiet nature of the museum. The video (attached) I created is a sample of what the experience would be like.
