The song may be part of a movie, a kid's video or just a song we like. I'll try and include why we like it and/or the history of the song/singer.
The musician I'm going to talk about this week is Robert Tiso. Have you ever heard of him? I haven't.
The boys were making noise in the backseat when I was driving yesterday. I turned on the classical station to try and get them to be more subdue. It sort of worked.
Robert Tiso was born in London. He plays music on filled, part filled and empty glasses. He calls his music Cristallofonia. He doesn't write all his own music, but his process is so creative! Robert Tiso has played for many music and art festivals, theatre shows, schools, educational programmes, cultural events, museums, private parties, TV and radio broadcasts and several events related to glass and water, the fundamental elements of his music.
I knew I could make sounds on the top of glasses filled at different level, but I didn't know one could do anything like Robert Tiso!
Even though the boys were annoying me on our drive home, I learned about a new musician for the week.
Glass harp-Toccata and fugue in D minor-Bach-BWV 565
