With an approach based on DOING, Fonofonies is intended to support musical learning while calling on creativity and imagination!

With one or many fingers your child can transpose, stretch, fragment, reverse, filter sounds to the limit of their creative imagination.

A buffer-memory of 20 seconds allows to record all their gestures in real time. This new sound can then be reinserted into their session to continue transforming it. They can then export it towards other apps to continue their track and share it with their friends!

By completing Fonofonies, your child will be familiarized to the world of the app Fonofone, a digital musical instrument used in many academic institutions for the pedagogy of sound creation and live performance.
