We propose Stage Set Interface (SSI), a device for communication and entertainment using music. SSI users enjoy interaction with playing music regardless of musical sensibility. Related works did not consider both increasing freedom of play and increasing ease of play. We considered them. And also, we designed and developed the interface based on stage metaphor. SSI is a table-top system which has intuitive playing rules. SSI users can play music based on physical movement corresponding to his/her emotion by using dolls as input interface. We evaluated SSI and showed availability of stage metaphor.
