Singing Fingers: Fingerpainting with sound

Eric Rosenbaum, Jay Silver


Singing Fingers is a new system that allows children to fingerpaint with sound. You paint by touching a screen with a finger, but color only emerges if you make a sound at the same time. By touching the painting again, you can play back the sound. This creates a new level of accessibility for recording, playback and remixing of sound. We describe several ways in which Singing Fingers can be used, including music making, exploration of sound, and interactive storytelling.
