This week I have two new links for you to check out.
The first is a clip is quite remarkable and is based on a photograph of birds sitting on telephone wires that resembled a musical staff. The person who snapped the photo wondered, if he were to turn each of the birds into a musical note, what would the photo sound like? Have a listen to the result. Does it give you any ideas for future assignments/projects for your students? Can your students “capture” something and then turn it into music?
The second clip is something I recently read about in a book on secondary music education, so I went looking for it online. This is a car commercial for Honda in which the creators have collected all the sounds that cars make and then transformed them into vocal sounds. In the end, it is a choir that is creating the soundtrack to this amazing commercial.
