The educational music box offers a founding musical experience for the new‐born baby.
“L’atelier des notes” the educational music box, uses lullabies to accompany the new‐born babies into their sleep. The melodies have been chosen in order to offer a maximum of possibilities to prepare for a future musical language apprenticeship. In music, the interval designates the spacing between two notes. The association of the first interval of a melody with a reference song leaves an auditive and affective blueprint in the child’s memory.
Objectives and Functionality
“L’atelier des notes” the educational music box intends to facilitate:
So, each of the 6 melodies represents one of the major scale’s intervals:
‐ The quality of the mp3 reader and its speaker deliver a bright and soft tone, naturally amplified by the massive maple box. It will hang on the child’s bed by the leather strap and its press button.
‐ The 6 melodies are played in random mode and each usage lasts 2 minutes.
‐ The music box works thanks to an internal mp3 player, power is supplied by 3 AA 1.5 V batteries. The autonomy
is about 10 to 12 months with 2 usages/day. (Batteries not included)
‐ The concept, the idea and the musical arrangements of the melodies were done during 2015‐2016 by Juan Buti, jazz guitar professor at the Riviera College of Music (CMVR).
‐ The electronic development was done by Matthey Franklin, electronics engineer, and the design by Jo Martinez from ideepub.ch. “L’atelier des notes” the educational music box is made in Switzerland by “Peche a la mouche amplificateurs” workshop and is built from Swiss wood.
