Ryan Raffa on Sound as Research

Aaron

Ryan Raffa, a designer/musician/artist and Adjunct Faculty at Parsons The New School for Design, came to speak at Mozilla last week about Sound as Research. He taught us new ways to use sound and design to investigate interaction, collaboration and education. Specifically, he walked us through two pieces of work where he uses design and sound to track NYC high school students’ problem solving skills to understanding music and composition through color and tangible prototypes.
