One of the most important insights and inspiration derived from the research, was knowing that for many profoundly deaf people, there was an important change in musical perception when they watched Fantasia, a Disney film that explores the relationship between music and animation, by creating an inspiring relation between dance and inanimate objects to represent rhythm and harmony. This is also inspired to a great extent by the baton, an inanimate object that becomes “real” when it is interpreted by a conductor, gaining attributes of musicality.
In this idea, two inanimate objects dance magically following a tonality, generating visual symbols associated with rhythm, pitch and harmony. These objects can be construed as a morphological union between pen and a baton. For this proposal, the idea of musicality is reinforced with vibrations (music is multidimensional), as well as generating a memory or representation (idea of record), by creating a 2D poster derived from the “Graphic Score”, which extends the manifestations of this experience to other contexts and time.
