Through

Musicking”, i.e. music as a relation building activity rather than music as an artwork object (Christopher Small). The term Musicking is used on all multi-sensory interaction to describe how to motivate communication, mastery, co-creation with physically, rhythmically, musically and visually mediated interaction

"Interactive Music Composition" are musical and narrative techniques for designing sounds for intelligent interfaces for diverse users that change the music while interacting. Users that have diverse demands since they can be professional musicians as well as persons with laymen expertice. To meet the diverse user group, the interfaces are modular, open and built up of 4 layers:  1. smallest musical part/sound node, 2. composition rules or algorithmes combining sounds, 3. narrative structures over longer time, and 4. physical and visual interfaces (Internet-of-Things)

Health promotion, i.e: "...the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve, their health. To reach a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, an individual or group must be able to identify and to realize aspirations, to satisfy needs, and to change or cope with the environment." (WHO/The Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion)
