This short paper presents an overview of our Visual Melodies installation through two of the themes we have created, the 'Sea Theme' and 'Night Sky Theme'. Visual Melodies utilises sound and moving images with the aim of inducing relaxation and stress relief. The key contribution of this project will be to create a relaxing and supportive therapeutic environment for visitors in healthcare settings. Participants will be able to sit on a sofa, listen to the music and control the moving images and sounds using wireless controllers. A computer programme has also been developed to interface sensors with animations, allowing people to interact and play with the installation. © ACM 2009.
