Music beyond Sound



Red Bull Amaphiko is a platform that promotes and uplifts people making a change in their communities, helps connecting with others and shares inspiring stories about social change. Ludwig is an app developed by Raphael Silva in the context of the Red Bull Amaphiko Academy that give hearing impaired people the pleasure of feeling a song and learning to play musical compositions. With the use of a wearable wristband, they are able to convert the sound waves that make up the characteristics of each musical note into a representative tactile rendition, and the app uses colors and images to provide a quick and clear reading of the sensations.

Red Bull Amaphiko challenges participants to develop technologies for translating music into visual and tactile experiences and allow people with hearing impairments to learn to play and even compose music
