This empirical article, is a case study that looks at how a lively girl with Down syndrome, together with her mother, father and grandmother, experiences the CCTs known as REFLECT, which was developed for the RHYME tests in 2013. Different from its predecessors, ORFI and WAVE, REFLECT has RFID tags, a type of technology that requires that participants scan one CCT onto another to activate the music through the RFID reader. Data were recorded via video observations of the family while they explored REFLECT, and an interview was done with the family immediately following their second experience with the platform. The question Stensæth asks is as follows: How does one family experience REFLECT, and how might their musicking with REFLECT potentially enhance their quality of life? The empirical part of this study will elaborate upon the methods and results, while the discussion and conclusion will apply certain theoretical perspectives to the whole enterprise.
