August 24th International Strange Music Day

What really constitutes as strange music anyway? This can be very subjective. However there are some strange ways of making music. There are famous sculptures that create music. Common household items can be used to create a symphony – hence the musical, Stomp. And then there is just weird music itself. But I believe the strangest music probably comes from instruments that are not common today…. There is a bubble organ (which is relatively new on the scene), a clackamore…and a laser harp (wonder if it’s dangerous). Who knows?????

How to celebrate: Look up some of the forgotten, and newest, instruments used to make music. Try to obtain one of these instruments and learn how to play it. Amaze your friends with a concert on your newly acquired musical instrument.
