In this paper we describe the intentions, the design and functionality of an Acousmatic Composition Environment that allows children or musical novices to educate their auditory curiosity by recording, manipulating and mixing sounds of everyday life. The environment consists of three stands: A stand for sound recording with a soundproof box that ensure good recording facilities in a noisy environment; a stand for sound manipulation with five simple, tangible interfaces; a stand for sound mixing with a graphical computer interface presented on two touch screens.
