THE READER BECOMES A PLAYER
With the inclusion of "creafon" sound tracks, the reader becomes both the conductor of an orchestra and a player through simple acoustic information. The texts and the bar-code-like audio information can produce sound through the touch of a finger.
Each chapter is based on a scene from Camille Saint-Saën's "Carnival of the Animals". The small conductor bug pictured on each page plays the whole piece. The interactive sound and text tracks, along with other vocal elements and auditive additions, engage in a playful, exploratory way to listen and create on one’s own.

CROSS-LINGUISTIC AND MULTISENSORIC COMMUNICATION
This application takes the current findings on language learning research (e.g. EU-Project EuroCom www.eurocomcenter.com) into consideration and fosters the discovery of relationships between languages, that means "We understand more languages than we think" (intercomprehension). At the same time, additional sources of information such as pictures, music and sounds, aid comprehension as well (e.g. EU-Project EMP-L www.emportfolio.eu). The following languages are currently integrated: Catalan, Classical Greek, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Italian, Latin, Rhaeto-Romance, Rumanian, Simplified Chinese, Slovenian and Spanish.

INTERCULTURAL UNDERSTANDING
This multi-media, multi-sensual, and multi-lingual product should contribute primarily to better understanding between people in different language areas as well as sensitize them to the variety of communication around them. An adaptation for other European and eventually non-European languages and dialects as well as the positioning of “Apps” within Europe should be made possible through the expansion of this first product.
