Our Story

About Tactus Music

As two engineers with a passion for music, we understand the power of music and the good it can bring to people’s lives. The deaf community understands this too, and there are some deaf individuals who seek their own musical experiences. We were inspired when we first met Professor Laurie Achin, a dancer and choreographer who is deaf. We learned about her process of memorizing music in order to choreograph, and we wanted to create a solution that would make the process easier for her.

Every team-member at Tactus has a deep connection with music. In addition to consuming and sharing music, we enjoy making it together. We believe in music as a way for people to connect with each other and have wonderful shared experiences.
