02: Jazz Improvisation - UX Flow
Visitors learn about jazz structure through a guided listening experience, that leads them to understand the freedom of expression that comes with improvising in jazz music.
03: Software Prototype
Test functional instruments to explore the freedom of expression within a musical framework.
