After my annual “Physics of Music” lecture/demonstration I give each Fall to our science students, some of the kids create musical instruments based on these acoustic principles.
This year, my music students borrowed some of those instruments and recorded improvisations with contact mics they built from piezo discs.
These loops, some distorted, some not, were loaded onto my Soundcloud account with a Creative Commons license that allows for derivative works on the condition that subsequent works are similarly licensed.
My students are writing music inspired by the creatures living at the Aquarium of the Pacific using these loops as source material.
