Nead a Really Cool Idea for a Composition Class?

28 03 2010

Here is a wonderful 20th Century composition technique using random items for students to try. Take this short video and play it for the class. Then ask them to see if they can find music in other things. Maybe in the collection of freckles on someones back or maybe in the random dropping of coins on a giant staff placed on the floor. It may inspire a wonderful journey in free composition! When they are done you can tell them that Jarbas has had over a million hits by listeners wanting to hear his composition and gives talks about his idea.
