Odd News from the Music World

Two unusual music stories, courtesy of my fraternity's listserv:
  • This one is a few years old, but worth mentioning: Students at Cornell build a MIDI device that's controlled by hamsters. (Check out the accompanying video, which shows how the animals' movement triggers the sounds.)

  • Someone has come up with a door that can be knocked melodically, with an octave's worth of notes.
It's a busy day, preparing for auditions at the college. I'll have more when that's over.
