The Muse code-name covers a large body of work, and its core is a playful and experimental musical universe (The Muse-Verse) that can be accessed both online (via Alpha Muse) and in different art installations and festivals around the globe (via the Muse Pods).

Some are just a sound or an effect. Others might be a note, a chord or a rhythmic element, or even song segments, tracks, loops, and full compositions. Visitors in the Muse-Verse attract these creatures, and can then choose to include them into their personal compositions, tweak and modify their musical character while flying through an abstract and virtual audio-reactive space. As their compositions mature, visitors can choose to leave them for future visitors or keep them for their personal later visits.
