Music Prompts

The COVID-19 situation is certainly a unique scenario for us all to experience. I hope you are healthy and safe where ever you are.

I have been impressed with the amount of positive sharing of suitable activities for families and children. I also have noticed the generosity of many companies who have offered free or reduced price access to their products. Of particular interest to me is in the music arena, where Moog, Korg, Roland, Arturia and many others have provided an interesting selection of apps as an example.

As I have been learning the apps and enjoying the wide range of capabilities and sounds, I decided to create some 1.5 to 2 minute musical soundscapes that could serve as prompts for drawing or painting a picture, telling a story,video, creating movement/dance, or perhaps using it in a new creative musical context.

There are 3 samples currently available for listening/download and I will continue to add 1 or 2 more samples each  week.  [Click here]  to access the files.

If you would like to share your creation with me, please leave a comment with a link to your creation.

Happy creating!!!
