For my senior thesis project in June of 2018, I wanted to create a radio app that made music accessible. Having worked at the radio station, I’ve noticed that KBVR-FM didn't have any options for those who want to listen to music but have hearing disabilities. This got me thinking: what efforts are being made by the music industry to accommodate those who are deaf or hard or hearing? For my thesis project, I wanted to explore how music can be interpreted using different senses in an effort to be inclusive for those with disabilities. My goal was to find a way to make music an enjoyable and understandable experience for everyone. In order to achieve my goal, I conducted research to find out how people, both hard of hearing and not, interpret music and emotion. With that information, I devised a way to turn music into a visual experience that can tie into the already auditory experience in an effort to make music accessible.
