in Bflat

A quick idea using the great site which is an online project that got people to film themselves performing simple drones in the key of Bflat and then allows the viewer/hearer to turn them on and off at will. Everything sounds nice because its all in the one key. I opened this up on my electronic whiteboard and then gave kids a chance to come up and experiment and create little arrangements. Its a great little site that enables the kids to instantly hear what it is like when you add a bass, or how the sound changes when a single note instrument like a trumpet comes in. It is also a great chance for them to hear music making using non traditional instruments and instruments that they might never have seen before.
