EAMIR is an open-source interactive music technology project founded in 2007 by V.J. Manzo . Early on, EAMIR was the Electro-Acoustic Musically Interactive Room , an installation with sensors and accessible controllers in a single music classroom, and, later, the project focus shifted toward developing and implementing modular single-purpose music applications for specific experiences and demographics with a primary focus on special needs education. As the project grew, the Modal Object Library used to develop early applications was expanded to create the EAMIR Software Development Kit. In 2015, EAMIR was formed as a 501c3 non-profit to further facilitate project development and implementation by creating a dialogue between music educators, software developers, and researchers, , and, in 2016, EAMIR took ownership of the Max Objects Database . Today, the EAMIR SDK is the point of focus for EAMIR as a resource and "starting point" for music projects that seek to implement controllers, sensors, and other interactive mechanisms toward facilitating diatonic melodies and chords.
