AUMI-KU InterArts

Adaptive Use Musical Instruments (AUMI) software interface enables people who have very limited controlled (voluntary) movement to independently engage in music making. Led by musician, composer, and humanitarian Pauline Oliveros, the Adaptive Use Musical Instruments (AUMI) project brings together the expertise of technicians at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) and the community education initiatives of the Deep Listening Institute.

We are proud to support American Studies Professor Sherrie Tucker, lecturer Ray Pence, and the rest of the AUMI-KU InterArts research team, which comprises faculty from several KU departments. AUMI-KU Interarts is a Member of the AUMI Consortium, an international research group dedicated to exploring, sustaining, developing, and sharing the Adaptive Use Musical Instrument.  Each AUMI Consortium Member institution has a particular area of focus. Ours is interdisciplinary arts and improvisation. To learn more, click on the AUMI logo.
