Disassemble an old printer (in this case a dot matrix) and drive the stepper motor(s) for linear motion or rotation. With Arduino.
A very simple circuit to activate four timed solenoids for automated percussion: in this case hitting resonant plastic pipes.

Ever wonder how much filament you actually used for a project or have an old mechanical ball mouse laying around to be recycled?

In the section of this page called CODE you find the text that should replace the whole Arduino code, as a test.
If you want to learn what Setup and Loop code are, there is plenty of information online, and tutorials as well, just Googli a bit :p
There is a work similar to what you describe at the Cooper Hewitt Museum of Design - New York , until October 25th. By an Israeli designer. I can't remember the name anyway, Using two touchable terminals to feel the music.
If you want to translate the music to separate outputs - you need to have separate tracks for different instruments in order to stimulate different parts of the body with different instruments. Like bass drum to your belly, snare to your chest, voice to your neck, cymbals to your head, guitars to your hands and so on...
You can use the L293D to drive stepper motors, but not in this exact configuration as the L293D is not a copy of the A4988.
To drive a stepper with your L293D you can google a bit and you will find some info, such as https://www.circuitmagic.com/arduino/how-to-run-a-stepper-motor-with-an-arduino-l293d-ic/L293D or http://www.theorycircuit.com/arduino-stepper-motor-interface/ . :)
