a long-term project


For the past fifteen years, our team has been working on the development of digital tools aimed towards the learnings of sound creation. Our mission is to offer applications that are intuitive and playful, while stimulating creativity as well as the imaginary. We create tools that stand outside of traditional approaches to music production. We first invented the Musicolateur, a small desk with two touch screens, cut-out in zones which each corresponded to a sound processing mode: selection tool, filter, sound variation, metronome, arpeggiator...

And then one day, the iPad appeared in our lives.
 

We then took the decision to abandon the hardware development and to focus on our concept within the iOS environment. Thus, after four years of development, fonofone was born. The application was founded on the same principals that were at the base of the Musicolateur : to offer an intuitive interface, playful and transparent, allowing to be immediately immersed in the creative process and favouring live performance.  It is an incredible instrument for creative learning, facilitating immensely the teacher's work. 
 

 

For the past fifteen years, our team gave hundreds of workshops with the Musicolateur and Fonofone, visited dozens of schools, social and cultural institutions, and participated to various sociocultural events in Canada, the United States of America and in Europe. 

Our goal: to create a Fonofone community that shares a passion for creativity and imagination. Our pedagogical approach

Depuis les quinzes dernières années, nous avons donné des centaines d'ateliers au Musicolateur et avec Fonofone, visité des dizaines d'institutions scolaires et culturelles à travers la province du Québec, participé dans de multiple évènements socioculturels au Canada, États-Unis et même en Europe. Notre but: créer une communauté Fonofone ayant comme passion la créativité et l'imagination. Notre pédagogie s'adapte à tous nos utilisateurs et se (trans)forme avec les contributions de ceux-ci.
