Art Hanging Day, plus Moving to the Music

Astor Piazzolla playing the bandoneon.

No homework over the weekend.

Class today:

Each class rotated the artwork on display in the rooms and common areas and hung a special exhibit of students' favorite pieces in Dr. Porter's office.

We wrote and talked briefly about how mapping music changes the way we listen.

We listened to a piece of classical tango music by Astor Piazzolla, then students moved around the room, mapping different parts of the music with their bodies.

Next week: more movement to music, introduction to rhythm, intro to music making, noise vs. music showdown, instrument building challenge
