Cochlear implant (CI) users experience several challenges when listening to music. However, their hearing abilities are greatly diverse and their musical experiences may significantly vary from each other. In this research, we investigate this diversity in CI users' musical experience, preferences, and practices. We integrate multisensory feedback into their listening experiences to support the perception of specific musical features and elements. Three installations are implemented, each exploring different sensory modalities assisting or supporting CI users' listening experience. We study these installations throughout semi-structured and exploratory workshops with participants. We report the results of our process-oriented assessment of CI users' experience with music. Because the CI community is a minority participant group in music, musical instrument design frameworks and practices vary from those of hearing cultures. We share guidelines for designing multisensory integration that derived from our studies with individual CI users and specifically aimed to enrich their experiences.
