Audiocubes provide a unique and interesting way to talk about and experience music, and are already being used in education, both at Universities, but also elementary schools. I stumbled across this video and had an interesting thought:
I have two kids at an awesome school that allows for the exploration of a vast array of different subjects. If funded, I could share a similar experience to the one above with the kids at our school. I envision talking a little bit about how the cubes work, how MIDI and electronic music works, and let the kids play with the cubes, probably having something like Mark Mosher’s 9box method pre-programmed into the cubes (so it’s a little less chaotic than the video above).
Watching the kids experiment and interact with the cubes in that video, and watching their expressions is priceless and inspiring.
