From Create Digital Music:
As others try to again recreate Bach on Moog synths, here’s the non-trivial act of banging about plastic tubes as fast as you can to recreate Bach’s Prelude #1. The group in question is a French ensemble dedicated to music with objects. Their other performances look fascinating, as well. Nor are they alone. There’s New Jersey’s Beats for a Cause, a percussion ensemble that does this stuff for charity.
Now, is the Boomwhacker the most convenient, the most sonorous, the most, uh, subtle of all instruments? Not… entirely. But it’s a reminder of just how many ways there are to make sounds, then form those sounds into music. Our ears and bodies are amazing things.
