What is Kemonia River?

A place where the entrepreneurial idea is born to the interweaving of different pieces of knowledge. An entrepreneurial melting pot for the creation of new languages, new actions, new solutions. This is Kemonia River, the startup that created the innovative musical staff in relief that makes ODLA one of a kind. 

Two inventors, Renato and Alessandro Pace, father and son respectively, treasured their long experience in musical and technological world.  

One day of some years ago, a dear friend of theirs who was their colleague and a blind composer from Palermo, Sicily, asked them to help him in transcribing one of his musical pieces on a notational software.  Thanks to that collaboration, they understood needs and difficulties a blind musician could have in writing music. A project focused not only on a visually handicapped person was born, it aimed towards all persons using softwares of music notation, in order to make them easy and more direct production of digital scores.
