MIROR is an acronym for "Musical Interaction Relying On Reflexion".

The project is co-funded by the European Community under the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) 7th Framework Programme. The project started on the 1st of September 2010 and will last for three years.

The MIROR Project deals with the development of an innovative adaptive system for music learning and teaching based on the reflexive interaction paradigm. The technology is being developed for application in early childhood and primary music education.

MIROR has the aim to contribute to promoting the reflexive interaction paradigm in the field of music learning, and also to establish a synergy between learning and cognition in the context of child/machine interaction. The project will be based on a novel spiral design approach involving coupled interactions between the technical partners and the psycho-pedagogical ones.
