The educational concept was born out of Juan Buti’s frustration at not finding a quality lullaby to put his son to sleep. The supply of good music boxes for children is unsatisfactory: very often the toys have poor intonation and mediocre timbre.
Juan Buti, who teaches music at the Riviera Conservatory, Montreux, talked about the project to Jean-Luc Denisart, co-founder of the engineering firm, Inov3, and likewise a musician. The idea aroused the interest of Antoine Cahen, internationally renowned designer, who has worked with Inov3 for many years. The objective then was to imagine a toy which relates the first gestures of an infant to its musical experience. With that in mind the choice of pieces is designed to educate the infant’s ear.
