Making Music

I came across Diego Stocco's videos thanks to a post on an inspiring design blog that I read. Diego can make music out of pretty much anything (listen to what he can do with a Bonsai tree).  Our IB Music teacher, Mr. Ackerman, assigns his students something similar: to compose music using only items in the kitchen.  This "Kitchen Etude" is designed to give students, no matter their ability, an opportunity to successfully compose music.  It seems that most of our students wanted to use Apple's GarageBand to record their composition.  Check out Arye's composition using only items from his kitchen.  Arye's Kitchen Etude
